At the end of November, PKP Cargo International (formerly AWT), a leading logistics operator in Europe, launched a new regular railway line between the Slovenian Port of Koper and the terminal in Mělník – December 3, 2020 These are container shipments for the world’s leading integrated logistics company and will be implemented throughout 2021. The international shipments of the Group are thus continuing to grow
in the north-south corridor Since the end of November, PKP Cargo International has been undertaking new container shipments between the Slovenian Port of Koper and the terminal in Mělník. At present, it involves one train a week, with the possibility of the number of trains increasing in the future. The contract for regular shipments was signed for the whole of 2021. Thanks to our subsidiaries PKP Cargo International in Hungary and Primol-Rail in Slovenia, this intermodal transport is being carried out under our own license and only with multi-system locomotives. “The growth of international transport in the north-south corridor and the direct intermodal connection between the Czech Republic and the ports of the Adriatic Sea are an important part of our strategy for the future. Combined transport and the direct connection of Central Europe to the Slovenian port of Koper have been an integral part of our portfolio of services for many years. We have extensive experience with it and our customers are very satisfied with these shipments,” says Maciej Walczyk, Chairman of the Board of Directors of PKP Cargo International. The new Mělník-Koper line is an addition to other long-term and regular rail and intermodal transports, which the group carries out several times a week in both directions in the north-south corridor to and from Central Europe and the Port of Koper, e.g. Paskov-Koper, Trnava-Koper or Karviná-Koper. “The new line from Koper to Mělník, which the PKP Cargo International Group operates with its own manpower and resources or other connections to ports, opens up business opportunities and possibilities for other global logistics operators and carriers that ship containers to European ports by sea,” adds Maciej Walczyk.
