Expanding our Stock of 30‘ Containers – Traffic to the Iberian Peninsula
For the upcoming year, the SCHMIDT Group has planned to further increase their intermodal traffic by adding another 500 30′ box containers to their current fleet of approximately 6000. In context with the existing silo storage at various locations within Europe, this makes for a flexible and customized warehousing concept covering not only temporary excess capacities in the vicinity of the respective production location but is also suitable for individual regional safety storage areas near the consignees.
Special emphasis is placed on expanding traffic to the Iberian Peninsula. In addition to a daily linkage of the Barcelona and Tarragona industrial centers, central coordination of our SCHMIDT Iberica subsidiary offers transport into the Bilbao, Murcia, Cartagena and Madrid area. The Vigo terminal in the northwest of Spain also covers traffic in the northern part of Portugal. In addition to rail traffic, we are incorporating short-sea transportation running several times a week.
From the business seat of our Spanish subsidiary in Tarragona, we provide – via the Vigo terminal – container traffic for our regional clients for their customers in the greater Porto area. In connection with our participation in the planned construction of a combi-terminal in Tarragona (CTC – Combi Terminal Catalonia) we are striving to offer a competitive alternative to the current dominance of road transport within Spain and Portugal.
