Arcese strengthens its partnership with Hupac by supporting the company in some tests on the intermodal route between Antwerp and Barcelona for P386 semi-trailers
An important step forward for intermodal transport has been achieved after successful tests carried out by Arcese together with Hupac, the Swiss leading intermodal network operator.
Infact, Hupac evolved the existing shuttle train between Antwerp and Barcelona making it able now to transport P386 semi-trailers. It is the first time that this type of loading unit is admitted on the Spanish network. The shuttle leaves from Antwerp Combinant terminal. it crosses France, where a maximum profile of P386 can be achieved, and enters Spain on the UIC line without the need to change railcars for the Spanish network. Finally, it arrives at Barcelona Morot terminal.
An important milestone achieved thanks to the support given by Arcese which demonstrates not only the strengthening and growth of a strategic relationship, but also the shared commitment in developing the European intermodal network promoting consistently efficient and sustainable logistics.
