New service for a more economical solution

Press Release

DSV announce a new multimodal service between the UK and Spain which utilises rail freight to provide a more economical solution

We are pleased to launch a new full load service between UK and Spain.

There is a demand for solutions that are not only cheaper than conventional road movement but also offer a greener alternative.  The rail option supports this requirement with a daily service between Calais and Boulou on the French / Spanish border.

Offering a full door to door service, on arrival at Boulou, DSV will collect the trailer from the train and deliver directly to the customer. The service is initially launched to facilitate the movement between the South and Midlands in the UK to Barcelona area (post codes 08,17,25,43).

As a large company it is important for us to make an active effort to reduce any impact we have on the environment and climate, DSV is committed to offering sustainable transport and logistics systems to support this.

This service is in addition to our standard driver accompanied and our double manned express driver accompanied services for when time matters.

Denise Clarke – Senior Director commented “We have trialled the route over the past few weeks and as we continuously monitor our carbon footprint, emissions and energy efficiencies, it is evident that utilising rail will make a positive impact on the environment as the same time we can offer our customer a better price. Today we officially launch the service as daily”
