LTG Cargo, the cargo transport company of the Lietuvos geležinkeliai (LTG) group, continues to actively diversify its activities.

Intermodal freight transportation

The company launched intermodal freight transportation from Kaunas Intermodal Terminal (KIT) to terminals in Poland. Freight trips are organized at the request of the client, informs railway magazine Railway Supply, citing LTG Cargo.

The first pilot runs to Gdansk and Malaszewiczy have already been carried out, and, at the request of customers, the possibility of transporting goods to other logistics centers in Poland, such as Poznan, will be explored.

“As the Group strengthens its position in Poland, we are looking for new opportunities and meeting the rapidly changing market needs as a result of Russia’s war in Ukraine. We are working to remain a strong part of the country’s logistics and help the country’s enterprises open new routes to European markets. In early April, we successfully launched our intermodal service to Duisburg in Germany and have already completed our first full-load trip. We offer our customers to use the potential accumulated by the Group in Poland,” says Egle Šime, CEO of LTG Cargo.

Customers traveling to and from Gdansk will have access to one of the most important deep water ports in the Baltic Sea, where the largest container ships from the Americas and Asia arrive. This logistics center is the only port in the region that regularly receives cargo from the Far East.

Meanwhile, the Malaszewicz intermodal terminal in eastern Poland has the ability to receive mainland cargo from East Asia and reload it for further transportation to the countries of the European Union. Malashevichi is home to many of the most important forwarding, logistics and transport companies in the region.

LTG Cargo will manage the new cargo routes in Lithuania, while the subsidiary LTG Cargo Polska will be responsible for the new routes in Poland.

This will allow companies to take care of all the necessary logistics solutions on their own, as they did with the cargo to Duisburg.

The length of the KIT-Gdansk-KIT route will be about 1100 km, and the KIT-Malaszewiczy-KIT route will be about 900 km. It is estimated that the one-way trip will take about 30 hours. Up to 42 containers with various types of goods can be transported per trip.

In the coming months, the company also plans to establish cooperation with new customers in Poland and look for ways to help Lithuanian enterprises import raw materials from Central European countries.
