The LTG Cargo train will connect Euroterminal Sławków with Kaunas
Euroterminal Sławków will have a regular connection with Lithuania. In mid-February, LTG Cargo will launch the Sławków – Kaunas train, which will transport containers between Poland and the Baltic States.
On February 16, the first train from Euroterminal Sławków to the Intermodal Terminal in Kaunas will depart. LTG Cargo will launch a regular connection with two pairs of trains a week. The train will carry 20, 30, 40 and 45-foot containers as well as tank containers. The new service is already popular with customers transporting various categories of goods between Poland and the Baltic States from industries such as: chemical, food and machine industries.
Kaunas and Sławków are important logistics hubs with access to the 1520 and 1435 mm railway network. Euroterminal Sławków offers connections with trains to Ukraine and several EU countries. In turn, Kaunas has a regular connection with, among others, with the port of Klaipeda.

“We decided to connect to Euroterminal Sławków because of the access to a wide track and the possibility of transporting goods from and to Ukraine, such as grain, fuels, methanol. The terminal in Kaunas, on the other hand, has regular connections with the port of Klaipeda and other locations in the Baltic States. The Amber Train connects Kaunas with the Muuga terminal in Estonia and will also be included in the network of international intermodal services,” comments Maciej Cetnerowski, director of intermodal development at LTG Cargo Polska.
In recent months, LTG Cargo has been expanding its network of international intermodal connections via Poland to various terminals in the European Union. This carrier is diversifying its activities after the introduction of EU sanctions has reduced the transport of goods between Lithuania and Russia. Combined transport on the TEN-T corridor North Sea – Baltic turned out to be a prospective market.
