Sixth Polish train for Ferrymasters

[ July 31, 2018   //   ]

P&O Ferrymasters has added a sixth weekly rail service between Poznan in Poland and Rotterdam. The additional departure – which will boost capacity by 20 per cent – is specifically designed for less trailer load (LTL) freight.

Mark Timmermans, Trailer director at P&O Ferrymasters (pictured), said: “We have responded to what our customers were telling us by introducing our first LTL service by rail using huckepack trailers which can be loaded from the side. There has been steadily increasing demand for LTL shipments to and from Poland, with rising exports from the Benelux countries driving volumes.”

P&O Ferrymasters launched the train in June 2017 between the CLIP terminal in Swarzedz-Poznan to Europoort in Rotterdam. Each train has a transit time of 20 hours and consists of 36 huckepack trailers which are able to carry up to 28 tonnes each. The newly introduced sixth service per week will depart on Mondays.
