Cargotor increases throughput capacity of Małaszewicze Reloading Region
Cargotor, the Polish company that manages the rail infrastructure of the Małaszewicze Reloading Region, has increased the throughput capacity of the transhipment complex. Up to 16 pairs of container trains will be able to run via the intermodal hub per day since mid-December 2021.
“This is our response to the dynamically changing market environment,” Andrzej Sokolewicz, CEO of Cargotor, briefly commented on the enhancement. According to him, the increased number of train connections were offered to railway undertakings with launching the new timetable on 12 December 2021. The previous enhancement of the throughput capacity, up to 15 pairs of freight trains per day, of the Małaszewicze Reloading Region was put into practice a year ago, on 13 December 2020.
The expiring year of 2021 has also set another milestone for both Cargotor and Małaszewicze. On 29 August, the railway complex handled the highest number of container trains in its history. 18 trains arrived and 15 trains departed from the Małaszewicze Reloading Region. This means that Poland’s railway hub served 16.5 pairs of container trains via the broad-gauge infrastructure.
