Renfe Mercancías, Terminal Intermodal de Monzón (TIM) and TP Nova have launched a new international intermodal container traffic service between Spain and France using the high-speed track and the Perthus Tunnel.


New container traffic service between Monzón and Lyon on standard gauge tracks

(19/12/2018) 
Trains run between Monzón Intermodal Terminal, Best, located in the Port of Barcelona, and the French one, the Lyon-Vénissieux terminal, from where they return also loaded with containerized goods. From the Spanish and French terminals, the containers are distributed to their final destination both by road and by rail.

This traffic, which has a load capacity of up to 72 Teus per train, is initially a weekly service, although Renfe Mercancías plans to increase the number of trains at a later stage.
