Logistics firms P&O Ferrymasters and Erontrans have launched an intermodal rail service linking the UK, Benelux and central Poland via Europoort, in Rotterdam.
P&O Ferries will ship equipment to and from the UK to the firm’s Europoort terminal, where freight operator LTE Netherlands will run four trains a week – in each direction – to the CLIP Group intermodal terminal in Swarzedz, Poland.
Each train has been purposely designed for huckepack trailers but containers including 45ft pallet wide units can be carried on request too. They will be made up of 36 trailers of up to 28 tonnes payload.
Loads are expected to take four days to travel from the UK to Swarzedz and two days from Benelux to Swarzedz.
