Technical note on the success story of the wine train

The challenge was clear: to be able to export wine products to Europe while cutting CO2 emissions very significantly. And the result has exceeded all expectations: more than 11,000 bottles of cava transported to Germany with a saving of 92% in CO2 emissions, in less time and with a 3% increase in load capacity compared to road transport.


The Trails Project


These are the details of the TRAILS project that involves the development of the multimodal logistics strategy with the railway as the backbone to achieve sustainable transport that without the train is not possible throughout its journey.


The Trails project is coordinated by CIMALSA. It has had a budget of €1,350,000 from 2018 to 2021, 65% co-financed by the POCTEFA Program, and with the participation of 10 partners between France and Spain, being a finalist for the Regiostars 2021 awards, organized by the Directorate General for Regional and Urban Policy of the European Commission.


Support and promotion


The project has had the support and promotion from its origins of two specialized clusters. One in the multimodal mobility and mobility sector, as is the case with In-Move by Railgrup, and another in the wine sector. Both coordinated efforts to provide technical and technological support to this project, which they extended internationally through the DITECFER Cluster of the European Railway Cluster Initiative (E.R:C.I.), which was able to provide first-rate technological solutions.


Design and coordination of the project by Tenalach Consulting.
