XPO Logistics new multimodal connection to United Kingdom



XPO Logistics has launched a new multimodal freight transportation service connecting the Iberian Peninsula with the UK that combines road and rail transport.


XPO Logistics new multimodal connection to United Kingdom

(08/09/2022) 

The new intermodal freight transport service is provided using XPO Logistics’ integrated network in Europe, via Cargo Beamer’s rolling highway between Perpignan and Calais. The connection will be used to transport goods from the Iberian Peninsula to the United Kingdom.

The first stop is at the Perpignan terminal in southern France. There, the company transfers the trailer from truck to train for rail transport to the Calais terminal, in the north, via Cargo Beamer’s rolling highway. At Calais, after handling the formalities required, the goods continue through the Eurotunnel. Upon arrival at the Ashford, Kent terminal in the UK, XPO manages the final stage of last-mile transport or distribution to customer facilities.
