• El Español has opened the voting for the 10th edition of this list that gives visibility to female talent in order to build a society based on equality.
  • Idoia Galindo is the only candidate for this ranking linked to the rail freight sector.

The CEO of Transfesa Logistics, Idoia Galindo, has been nominated as one of the candidates for the list of ‘The TOP 100 Women Leaders in Spain’, which was launched on 7 December by El Español. This list allows to know and support women who have reached the top in big companies.

Idoia Galindo belongs to this list in the category of ‘Top Management’ along with 84 other women from renowned companies. This category allows us to get to know those women who hold the positions of CEO, presidents, vice presidents or general managers of large companies.

According to the “Women in Business 2022” report, only 7% of Spanish companies have a woman on the board of directors of large companies. And, despite this figure, Spain is currently in the top 10 countries with the highest presence of women in senior management positions.

Idoia Galindo, CEO of Transfesa Logistics, is one of the leaders and protagonists in rail freight transport throughout Europe. She has been linked to Transfesa Logistics for 14 years, where she began in 2008 as Director of the Corporate Legal Department, later moving on to head the Asset Management and Operations Department and the Railway School. In addition to being CEO, she is also a Director and Chairman of the Board of Directors of several companies in the group. She is the first woman to head the company in its 79-year history.

Since he started leading the company, one of his priorities has been to ensure that more and more freight travels by rail. In this line, he is in charge of the campaign “Mercancías al tren” in Spain, which aims to make visible the advantages of the railway as a more sustainable means of transport as it emits up to 80% less CO2 than its equivalent by road, reduces external costs by up to 50%, helps to decongest roads, to reduce accidents and noise and, moreover, consumes 6 times less energy.
