The emission values were determined using the independent calculation tool EcoTransIT World. EcoTransIT World's emissions calculation met the previous EN16258 standard and will be fully compliant with ISO 14083 by the end of 2023.
Valencia – Cologne
Your strong rail to Spain
The southwest route has proven itself time and again for the automotive, fast moving consumer goods, steel and chemical industries. It offers customers effective transport options for a wide range of goods.
With the extension of the European standard gauge to Barcelona a few years ago, there is now another fast option for transport to and from Barcelona in addition to axle changing or transhipment at the Spanish border. In future, Valencia, Tarragona and Martorell are also to be connected to the European standard gauge network, so that continuous rail connections to these locations will also be possible without the need for axle changing or transhipment.
Nevertheless, Transfesa Logistics offers the option of crossing the border either via the Atlantic or via the Mediterranean corridor through axle changing.
Einsiedlerhof as the central hub
DB Cargo Logistics uses the hub in Einsiedlerhof as the core of the logistics solution for finished vehicles on the Spain corridor. This is where the block trains that start in the direction of Spain are formed. Up to Einsiedlerhof, the car carrier wagons either travel in single wagon traffic or in existing train systems from the various plants and ports in Germany and Europe. The hub concept offers the significant advantage that by bundling the quantities from the respective plants into a direct train, smaller quantities can also be dispatched more quickly and the overall transit times are significantly reduced.
