Hupac doubles train frequency between Poznań and Duisburg
Hupac has increased the frequency of intermodal trains from three to six per week between the Duisburg DRT terminal and the Metrans hub in Gądki near Poznań. The new timetable on this route is valid from 4 July.
The extension of the intermodal service connecting large industrial centres of Poland and Germany became possible due to the synergistic cooperation between Hupac and Duisport Agency Polska. Meanwhile, customers can use the transport between Duisburg and the Metrans terminal in Pruszków thanks to the three trains a week running on the Gądki – Pruszków route. Trains from Duisburg to Gądki depart daily from Mondays to Saturdays, and to Pruszków on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
At the same time, Hupac is completing the construction of its intermodal terminal in Brwinów near Warsaw. A new logistics centre is being built on a plot of almost 14 hectares, which will consist of a 42,000-square-metre warehouse and four 750-meter-long tracks. The facility is scheduled to start operating in early September. After its launch, trains that currently go from Duisburg to Pruszków will be directed there.
Hupac has an extensive network of regular connections based on shuttle trains between the North Sea ports and terminals in Northern Europe and Germany, and Italy, Austria and Switzerland, and between these services and shuttle trains to countries in Central and Eastern Europe, including Poland. The Swiss operator offers transport of P400 semi-trailers and containers.
