Containerline Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) is launching of a new rail freight service between Seville, Spain, and the Atlantic, beginning April 4.
The service is expected to run daily between Seville’s inland maritime port – Puerto de Sevilla – and the port of Sines in Portugal, with a capacity of more than 100 teu per return journey.
Shippers will have the possibility to obtain customs clearance for cargo at Seville’s inland maritime port, before onward carriage to Sines and Atlantic markets.
“MSC’s new rail service will provide better connectivity and improved transit times for exporters in various southern and western regions of Spain seeking to reach markets in the Americas and northern Europe,” the line stated in a release.
The service is operated in conjunction with Medway, MSC’s logistics subsidiary in Iberia.
