Małaszewicze as a key hub on the Eurasian transport map – debate

2021/07/14 at 10:10 AM

Container trains on the New Silk Road have been breaking new records for many months. The possibility of developing rail transport between China and Europe depends on the efficiency of border reloading terminals, the most important among them are Brest and Małaszewicze.

Clogged seaports and the steadily growing trade turnover between the European Union and China are prompting logistics operators to move more and more freight by rail. The bottleneck in intermodal transport is the railway border crossings at the junction of lines with different gauges, 1,435 and 1,520 millimetres, where containers have to be reloaded between trains. Forwarders and rail carriers are looking for every possibility to carry out transhipments. The connections are being launched via terminals in Sławków, Dobra in Slovakia, Medyka and Mostyska, Kaliningrad and Klaipeda.

Despite the emergence of new branches on the New Silk Road, its most important route is still that through the Polish-Belarusian border and Małaszewicze, where gigantic investments are planned in the coming years, thanks to which a transport hub of Eurasian importance will be created here.

How the logistics centre in Małaszewicze is developing, we will be able to see live during the conference “Railway border crossings – a key to export and transit”. In addition to talks with experts and industry representatives, it will be possible to participate in a study visit to the transhipment terminals.

The conference will be held on 20-22 October in Małaszewicze, Janów Podlaski and Terespol. The event is organised by the editorial office of IntermodalNews.pl and the ProKolej Foundation.
