The Port Authority of Valencia invests more than €100 mln in the improvement of the Valencia-Teruel-Zaragoza line, or the railway access to the port of Sagunto. The connection, set up by CSP Iberian Rail Services, is an opportunity to strengthen the competitiveness and international development of the industries in Aragon.
The new rail service launched by CSP Iberian Rail Services linking the Port of Valencia with Zaragoza is now operational. The second train loaded with containers bound for the Plaza Zaragoza logistics platform left the Cosco terminal facilities in the Valencian port area.
For Cosco, the Zaragoza rail terminal is a strategic infrastructure in Spain as it guarantees the connection with its two maritime terminals, located in the ports of Valencia and Bilbao, for which the improvement of the Cantabrian-Mediterranean Corridor and, especially, the Valencia-Zaragoza section is fundamental. The company’s commitment seeks to reinforce the connection between its terminals on this route, so that in the future, depending on the evolution of this section, it will study extending the service to the group’s terminal in Bilbao, CSP Iberian Bilbao Terminal.
Valenciaport has always been at the side of this project, promoting the development of this key infrastructure for the business fabric of Aragon so that its products can reach the ports of Valencia and Sagunto quickly, efficiently and safely. The commitment of all the agents involved is taking firm steps towards a competitive rail connection linking the two territories.
