Boekestijn Transport decided to start active promotion of “Linked by Rail” consortium, and at the same time intermodal connections and possibilities. As from now, “linked by rail Locomotive” is easily to be meet not only on main European rail paths but also on highways in whole Europe and a bit of Africa, including Morocco.
Linked by Rail Project
The main goal of the Linked by Rail project is to dynamically develop new intermodal transport solutions between The Netherlands and Poland vice versa. It is run by a group of well known and reputable Dutch as well as Polish transport and logistic companies who are active in both countries.
The project has so far established one very attractive connection between Port of Rotterdam and Swarzedz (near Poznan) in Western Poland. A second connection is currently in preparation to link the Port of Rotterdam area with the Silesia region in Southern Poland.
ROTTERDAM – SWARZĘDZ (near Poznań)
The well established intermodal connection between terminals in the Port of Rotterdam and CLIP Intermodal Terminal in Swarzedz (near Poznan) in Western Poland provides a very efficient as well as sustainable way of transport connecting two major European industrial regions six times per week.
ROTTERDAM – SILESIA AREA
In 2015 partners of the Linked by Rail project signed an agreement to establish a second intermodal connection between the Port of Rotterdam area and Silesia region in Southern Poland. Having gained a vast experience with the successful Rotterdam – Swarzedz corridor implementation the goal is to provide another highly efficient rail based transport solution between two major European regions. Rotterdam and Silesia being Linked by Rail shall enable consortium partners as well as their customers to successfully shift cargo from road to rail.
The Dutch government invites managers of Polish transport companies, Logistic Service Providers and shippers to take part in a three day training course (plus internship in the Netherlands) on Intermodal Transport.
