Samskip enhances services on Spain


With effect from 10th October, 2016 Samskip has increased the number of sailings between Rotterdam and Bilbao and has enhanced the rail set-up into Barcelona.

Shortsea service Rotterdam - Bilbao

Samskip is now able to offer a second sailing between Rotterdam and Bilbao each week, increasing flexibility for our clients. Our vessels leave Rotterdam on Monday and Friday, to arrive in Bilbao respectively on Thursday and Monday.

From Bilbao, rail services are operated to Madrid, Valencia, Vitoria, Zaragoza and Barcelona on a regular basis.

Rail service Rotterdam - Perpignan

With a new rail set-up of five train departures a week and a 3-day transit time between Perpignan and Rotterdam, Samskip offers a fast intermodal service linking Perpignan and Barcelona to Rotterdam with onward European connections.

This service has a proven track record and a reliable and non-stop connection enables dedicated capacity and swift transit times to our customers.

This rail service has replaced the rail connection between Duisburg and Bettembourg, which connected the Duisburg terminal to Lyon and Le Boulou, which was discontinued on 1st October 2016.
