CLIP Group installs the first Lohr Railway System in Poland.

Lohr Railway System is a modern technology, patented and proven in operation, allowing for horizontal loading of standard road semi-trailers onto railway wagons, without the need for a crane. For over a dozen years it has been used in the intermodal transport, mainly between France and Italy. Now it is also available in Poland. The system was installed in Swarzędz, at the CLIP Intermodal Terminal. It is the first installation of this type not only in Poland, but also in any European country east of the Bettembourg – Orbassano near Turin axis. For proper operation it requires the use of specialized wagons equipped with a rotating platform on which a tractor with a semi-trailer is driven. When properly positioned, the set is disconnected, and the platform with the trailer rotates and aligns parallel to the axis of the wagon. Importantly, the system allows for loading the wagons with semi-trailers, which due to their technical parameters cannot be lifted vertically with the use of a reachstacker or an overhead crane. Semi-trailers of this type are still the vast majority of trailers operated by road carriers throughout Europe. The advantages of the Lohr Railway system include: short loading and unloading times, possibility of loading / unloading many wagons at the same time, no need to use additional reloading devices. The installation of the innovative Lohr Railway system is the next step in the modernization of the CLIP Intermodal Terminal, a step that has a significant impact on the development of the entire intermodal transport sector. Thanks to that, CLIP Intermodal Sp. z o.o. will expand the loading capacity of the train...

The world’s most modern reachstackers at the CLIP Intermodal Terminal in Swarzędz.

The world’s most modern reachstackers at the CLIP Intermodal Terminal in Swarzędz.

The CLIP Intermodal Terminal has been enriched with two new, ecological reachstackers for reloading of containers and road trailers. These are the only ECO Efficient series Kalmar cranes in Poland and the most modern in the world. They are equipped with a specialized drive system reducing fuel consumption by 30-40% compared to the classic drive with a large 11-liter diesel engine and a torque converter. The modern Kalmar ECO is based on a smaller 7.7-liter Volvo Penta engine and an automatic CVT transmission for higher speeds and a hydrostatic drive for lower speeds. ECO series Reachstackers, in addition to reducing fuel consumption, also reduce the level of harmful exhaust emissions into the atmosphere and significantly reduce the level of noise emissions. The purchase of new reachstackers was carried out by Centrum Logistyczno Inwestycyjne Poznań 2 as part of the project entitled “Expansion of the intermodal container terminal in Jasin near Poznań” co-financed by the Cohesion Fund under the Operational Program Infrastructure and Environment 2014-2020 Priority III. Development of the TEN-T road network and multimodal transport Measure 3.2 – Development of maritime transport, inland waterways and multimodal...
