Modern Transshipment Terminal Opens in Central Poland
September 30, 2011   
Article's tools:

The long-awaited Kutno Terminal, an overland transshipment hub for central Poland, was to officially open at noon Sept. 30. The investor in the terminal is PCC Intermodal, a leading intermodal transportation operator in Poland, listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange since 2009. A live feed from the opening ceremony was to be streamed via the PCC Intermodal website and selected business websites, including Parkiet.com, Bankier.pl and Egospodarka.pl.

The state-of-the-art Kutno Terminal sits on the E-20 rail line, which links Berlin with Warsaw and Moscow. Nearby is the main railroad no. 131, which runs from the north to the south of Poland and links the Baltic Sea with the Upper Silesia and South Europe. The terminal is close to several major roads and interchanges:

- national road no. 92 (Polish border-Poznań-Warsaw-Terespol-Polish border)—1 km;
- ‘‘Piątek” interchange on the A2 freeway (Nowy Tomyśl-Poznań-Stryków)—40 km;
- Kotliska interchange on the A1 freeway (currently under construction)—3 km;
- national road no. 1 (Cieszyn-Łódź-Gdańsk)—22 km;
- national road no. 60 (Łęczyca-Płock-Ostrów Mazowiecka)—4 km.

The terminal’s location ensures optimal operating costs and provides a large group of customers with modern transportation solutions and top-quality service.

A new, 650-meter-long track has been built specially for the terminal and the project also involved the redevelopment of rail traffic control system at the Stara Wieś train station.
The handling capacity of the Kutno Terminal presently stands at over 100,000 TEU a year, but after the terminal is expanded, its capacity will rise to 200,000 TEU a year.

- operates regular rail connections between land terminals and port terminals in Poland (Gdańsk/Gdynia) and abroad (Hamburg, Bremerhaven and Rotterdam);
- develops a cohesive and modern network of intermodal connections for effective handling of cargo, taking advantage of both rail and road transportation.

The company has operated in Poland since 2005. Owing to a consistently pursued strategy, PCC Intermodal has grown rapidly and systematically increased its work force. PCC Intermodal has offices in Gdynia, Kutno, Brzeg Dolny, Gliwice and Jaworzno. The company is part of the PCC SE international group with its headquater in Duisburg, Germany. The group operates in the chemical, energy and logistics sectors. PCC SE has offices in 12 countries and employs a staff of over 2,000.
