CSP Iberian Zaragoza Rail Terminal is ready to offer Piggybacking service, adding a new modality to the aragonese logistics hub

CSP Iberian Zaragoza Rail Terminal (CSPZ), a subsidiary of the CSP Spain group, confirmed to ADIF and the Government of Aragon, its ability to immediately operate up to two daily ferroutage trains. After the tests carried out during the last months on a regular basis in collaboration with transport companies, the terminal, located in the ADIF terminal PLAZA Zaragoza, confirms the satisfactory results and its immediate capacity for regular operations for this type of service.

Piggybacking, or ferroutage, is a form of rail freight transport in which trains transport, by means of special wagons, trailers or entire trucks from a terminal of origin to which they arrive by road to a destination terminal where, once unloaded, it continues its journey by road. It combines the advantages offered by rail transport (such as safety, less environmental impact and economy) with those of road transport, especially the direct access to loading / unloading points

The terminal that CSPZ operates in Zaragoza is located in the largest intermodal terminal in Spain, in the PLAZA logistics platform,  with 7 loading / unloading lanes of more than 750 net meters between cantons, and unbeatable road and rail connections.

CSP Iberian Zaragoza Rail Terminal was established in 2013 to operate this terminal and offer intermodal services for the PLAZA logistics platform. The terminal aims to strengthen the railway corridors that link the hinterlands of the ports of Valencia and Bilbao with Zaragoza, as well as the development of the Central and Atlantic railway corridors that link Zaragoza with the south-central Iberian Peninsula and the ports of the Atlantic cornice.
