The Port of Tarragona will initiate new rail services to central Spain, Antwerp and Ludwigshafen  

The ro-ro line linking the Port of Tarragona with Turkey is beginning to generate new intermodal services 

The route operator is calling for a rail superhighway to connect Tarragona with the rest of Europe 

 

As part of the Second Rail Day, the Ekol Group General Freight Manager, Alfio Centocinque, announced the new intermodal services and explained that "there is huge interest in Tarragona is from an existing market". 

The first train to enter into service, scheduled for May this year, will connect the Port of Tarragona to Azuqueca de Henares (Madrid). The other two planned trains will connect the Port with two important logistics nodes in northern Europe, Antwerp and Ludwigshafen. The Antwerp route is expected to become operational within two months, while the German route has no definite date yet.
