P&O Ferrymasters is launching an intermodal rail service linking the UK, Benelux and central Poland in cooperation with Erontrans, the Polish operator.
The companies have selected Europoort-based LTE Netherlands as rail carrier for the service, which offers four trains per week each way between Europoort–Rotterdam and the CLIP terminal in Swarzedz-Poznan.
Capacity per departure is 36 trailers of up to 28 tonnes payload. The trains are purpose-designed for huckepack trailers but containers including 45 ft PW units can be carried on request. Transit times are four days to/from the UK and two days for Benelux.
