The Austrian carrier ÖBB Rail Cargo Group (RCG) started to perform intermodal transport between Paskov and Gdańsk with its own fleet. According to RCG, this is the only direct connection leading from the regions of Moravia and northern Slovakia to Gdańsk, one of the most significant European ports.

“By switching to own traction, RCG takes control of the entire transport process, from train provision to arrival at the port of destination and vice versa. This end-to-end logistics solution enables optimised route planning and improved efficiency along the entire route. The TransFER is operated with two weekly round trips and a transit time of just one day. The ideal corridor parameters provide capacity for heavy containers in particular. Other benefits of this TransFER connection include direct ship connections to the Far East and Scandinavia – with transit times comparable to Hamburg”, the company states in its press release.

The train journey time between Gdańsk and Paskov is 18 hours. The 20-, 40- and 45-feet containers are moved. Transport by rail on this route reduces CO2 emissions per container by around 50 per cent compared to road transport. The Paskov terminal is one of the most important transhipment centres in Central Europe, from which RCG distributes sea goods (FCL – Full Container Loads) to their destinations in Czechia and Slovakia.
