Clip Group together with Duisport and PKP Cargo launches a regular train from Poland to Germany transporting semi-trailers 3 times a week.

In response to the growing administrative restrictions on international road transport and the increasing costs this kind of transport, in the coming days Clip Intermodal, Duisport Agency together with PKP Cargo S.A. start intermodal rail shuttle on the Poznań – Duisburg route. Technically, the connection will be ready to start on 01/04/2020, but will be launched as orders arrive. Currently planned connection frequency is 3 times a week, but in the case of high interest we are able to increase the number of connections to the daily service very quickly. The planned composition of the wagons will allow not only intermodal units to be transported, but also so-called semi-trailers. standard using the CargoBeamer system. The transit time by train between Poznań and Duisburg is only 14 hours. The capacity of each train is 36 semi-trailers or 45-foot containers, which will allow unloading roads by more than 10,000 trailers per year and avoid CO2 emissions in the amount of about 15,000 tons. An additional benefit in intermodal transport is the possibility of loading up to 26t of goods onto a single semi-trailer. It is also important to become independent of the restrictions on COVID-19 currently occurring in road transport.  ...

CLIP Intermodal expands fleet of wagons

CLIP Intermodal expands fleet of wagons

Clip Intermodal received the first part of T3000e doublepocket wagons (see Wagon Card). The first 16 of the ordered 92 wagons arrived to Swarzędz.     The wagons will be included in existing intermodal connections of which Clip Intermodal is the operator – to Duisburg, Luxembourg, to existing domestic connections as well as to planned new connections with southern Europe (see connections).     Thanks to doublepocket wagons, it is possible to transport intermodal road semi-trailers, which will significantly reduce the number of trucks on the road and reduce CO2 emissions. This is how we implement the slogan “trucks on tracks”. We estimate, that in the case of the connection with Luxembourg, we will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by approximately 20.000 tonnes yearly.   Marcin Żurowski, Director of the CLIP Intermodal Terminal: Doublepocket wagons will complement the existing Clip Intermodal wagon fleet. Currently, we have 180 pcs. of 80″, as well as 60 pcs. of 90″ intermodal wagons. The introduction of doublepocket wagons allows for full optimization of wagons on individual connections and adapting to customer requirements. As a result, we get a very economically effective ecological product that is a response to the growing requirements of the intermodal transport market. I have to mention that purchase of pocket wagons is part of the project to expand the entire CLIP Logistics Center in Swarzędz with a very modern infrastructure for transhipping intermodal units. As part of this project, 3 RMG cranes with a span of 100 m and 2 RTG cranes will be purchased. The railway infrastructure will also be expanded with further tracks for transhipping trains, a new...

First innovative intermodal train Poland – Luxembourg

As announced during the Transport Logistic fair in June 2019, CLIP and CFL multimodal successfully completed their partnership project and expand their respective service offering with the launch of a rail motorway train between Bettembourg-Dudelange and Poznan-Swarzędz. The first train left the Intermodal Terminal of Bettembourg-Dudelange today.
