Poland’s intermodal sector to meet in Małaszewicze
The role of railway border crossings for the functioning of global logistics chains and the local labour market will be the subject of the conference “Railway border crossings – a key to export and transit”. The event will take place in Janów Podlaski, Małaszewicze and Terespol. The conference is one of the events of the European Year of Railways 2021.
The Małaszewicze Reloading Region and the railway terminals located here are one of the most important economic centres in the Lublin Voivodeship. In terms of the volume of cargo transported, the Brest-Terespol rail border crossing point is comparable to the Port of Gdynia. In the coming years, Cargotor plans to build a Logistics Park there.
In recent months, in Małaszewicze, as well as in other railway border crossings located at the break of gauge of railways with standard and broad tracks, problems with congestion have been visible. They are the result of the rapidly growing rail transport between China and the European Union and the failure to adapt the infrastructure to the needs of the dynamically developing intermodal transport.
Conference participants will be able to see how the railway border crossing and transhipment terminals in the Małaszewicze area work. A discussion among professionals and a presentation of experiences and dynamic changes in the economic environment will allow identifying the possible development scenarios. The statements, materials and conclusions of the conference will have a practical expression as they will be provided as a contribution to the ongoing process of preparation of support instruments for the industry within the framework of the beginning of the new EU budget perspective.
The conference “Railway border crossings conference – a key to export and transit” will take place on 20-22 October. The event is organised by the IntermodalNews.pl Editorial Board and the ProKolej Foundation.
