The Port Authority of Barcelona awarded GPO with the preliminary design for the Intermodal Terminal of Barcelona’s Port. The terminal is expected to improve the rail-truck connectivity. The solution designed by GPO optimized the capacity of the future facility according to the existing constrains. The selected alternative has 2 terminals for loading/unloading and 2 terminals for shipping/receiving with a total capacity of 865,000 TEUs/year (1,332,000 with automated storage system). The access to the terminals was designed through the rail loop that connects with the general network.
