Railsider is the outcome of the consolidation under a single brand name of all those logistics operators in which Grupo Algeposa and Renfe Mercancías are jointly involved.
Railsider is a joint venture involving two companies: Railsider Atlántico and Railsider Mediterráneo, which provide a service on both the axes crossing the Iberian Peninsula, operating under a single reference brand, Railsider, thereby enabling the firm to provide its customers and shippers with holistic solutions for their supply chain management.
The integration of Algeposa Grupo’s strengths in sea transport, Renfe’s experience in railway freight transport, together with Railsider’s leadership as a railway logistics operator, all combine to make us Spain’s benchmark intermodal transportation operator.
An operator that works with Europe’s main railway companies on improving today’s solutions in logistics, the ad hoc design of new options, and innovation at every stage of the supply chain.
Our aim is to ensure our customers look upon Railsider as a partner to help them reduce their logistics costs.
The team of over 150 professionals in our railway division has ample experience, and its performance has been widely acknowledged.
Railsider has recruited these personnel for its business operations because of their quality, expertise and in-depth understanding of the duties they perform.
Their core values are the commitment, dedication and engagement they profess in their professional dealings, and these qualities, combined with their technical profile, constitute one of the keys to our success.
We are talking about an expert team that is at our clients' disposal to provide a proactive and quality service whose main aim is to ensure their logistics are integrated and wholly satisfactory.

Within the framework of the ALGEPOSA GRUPO railway division’s operations in the field of sustainability, there is one policy referred to in Spanish as Producción Más Limpia (PML), which means cleaner production. It enables us to implement a preventive environmental strategy that is embedded in our production process, as well as in the products and services themselves, with a view to mitigating any significant hazards affecting people and the environment.
In the case of production processes, this strategy involves cutting back on the use of raw materials and energy, eliminating any toxic raw materials, and reducing the amount and toxicity of all contaminating emissions and wastes.
As regards products, the strategy’s aim is to reduce the negative impacts associated with their life-cycle, from the extraction of raw materials through to their final delivery. In terms of services, it seeks to incorporate the environmental dimension in both their design and rendering.
Railsider’s organization is based on an Integrated Management System that focuses on the continuous improvement of the services rendered to our customers. This system is embodied in our management’s firm commitment to the three main pillars of our development: quality, safety and durability.
The continuous improvement of our management procedures is an ever-present value in our organization’s teams, bearing in mind the utmost safety and minimum environmental impact of all the projects we undertake. Our operations are certified according to the following standards: ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001.
The application of these systems has generated a high level of satisfaction among our customers, collaborating teams and society at large.
