Railsider awarded the tender for the transport of aluminium plate

The Irun-based company Railsider has been awarded the tender called by the multinational Alcoa for the transport of aluminium plates between the steelmaker’s San Ciprián plant in the province of Lugo and its Amorebieta plant.

Railsider undertakes these operations through a combination of road and rail transport, applying a new logistical solution that is different to the one it has been using to date.

This novel system ensures the traffic is more efficient, with this being a key factor in the award of the tender.

The contract involves moving over 60,000 tonnes of freight per year.
