Intermodal transport has developed dynamically in recent years, although it still accounts for only a small part of the overall rail and sea transport. The share of intermodal transport in the rail market in the first half of 2020 in Poland reached the level of 10.3%. It is still less than in the countries of Western Europe. Nevertheless, recent years show that the demand for intermodal services in Poland is constantly increasing, as they make it a lot easier, especially for entities with large volumes.
CLIP Group S.A. responds to the needs of companies expecting future-oriented services. The latest example of this is the expansion of the CLIP Intermodal Terminal. This is the next stage of the investment under the project “Expansion of the intermodal container terminal in Jasin near Poznań”. The investment is co-financed by the European Union from 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 sea transport, inland waterways and multimodal connections The total value of this project is estimated at PLN 202.260.680,66.
The investment will triple the handling capacity of the current terminal from the current 136,000 TEU yearly to 533,000 TEU yearly, or up to 20 trains a day. The amount of storage space will also be doubled from the current 4,500 TEU to around 10,000 TEU. This will be achieved by adding 4 tracks, 750 m each, an additional storage yard and by installing 3 RMG gantry cranes under which it will be possible to reload 6 trains at the same time.
Works on the expansion of the CLIP terminal will be completed in the fourth quarter of 2021 year.
