The company will be in charge of providing UTI (intermodal transport unit) handling and storage services at the freight terminal.

This award signifies another step in the company’s commitment to a sustainable logistics chain, with rail being the central element of an intermodal door-to-door service.

In a joint venture with Slisa, Transfesa Logistics has been awarded management of the La Negrilla logistics terminal in Seville and will provide UTI (intermodal transport unit) handling and storage services to railway companies or third parties who request it.

This award represents another step in the company’s commitment to a sustainable supply chain, with the train as the central element in an intermodal door-to-door service.

Strengthening the entire logistics chain

The new contract strengthens Transfesa Logistics’ position as a key partner in freight transportation inside and outside of our borders. The company is already in charge of managing and operating numerous intermodal terminals, including its rail port services. This includes terminals in Valladolid, Abroñigal (Madrid), Sagunto (Valencia) Ford Almussafes (Valencia), Constantí (Tarragona) and Granollers (Barcelona).

The entry strategy in Seville is mainly due to the fact that traffic from a Transfesa Logistics client already passes through this logistics hub. Now that they take care of handling the shipping containers in which the freight itself is transported, an even more complete service may be offered, supplying the entire logistics chain.

This work having been awarded in Seville will lead to the creation of two jobs, in addition to the Transfesa Logistics professional who is already in charge of rail maintenance at these facilities.

La Negrilla, a key terminal

The La Negrilla terminal is key throughout the southern junction, as it is the origin and destination station for freight rail traffic in Seville and surrounding areas, where freight receipt, classification and delivery is carried out. The main operations include container handling. The logistics facility has 14 hectares of surface area, covering track routes, warehouses, docks and offices, in addition to several plots and additional land. The figures for 2020 highlight the high level of activity in the terminal, a year in which 850 trains and 14,544 UTIs were handled.
