POLAND: Silesian Logistics Centre has completed three projects intended to create a modern logistics hub at the inland port of Gliwice, which is connected by a 41 km canal to the River Odra and thus the Baltic Sea.
A new warehouse was inaugurated in June, increasing storage at the site which includes bonded facilities and provision for the chemical and steel industries.
PCC Intermodal’s Gliwice transhipment terminal has been rebuilt at cost of 54m złoty, including 17m from the EU’s POIiŚ fund. The terminal has 650 m long sidings, two gantry cranes and a working area of 50 000 m2. It can store up to 2 900 TEU with an annual handling capacity of 150 000 TEU. A wagon repair shop is equipped with jacks to enable bogies and wheelsets to be removed.
There are three intermodal trains a week between Gliwice and Sopron in Hungary, with onward connections for Austria, Italy and the Balkans.
PCC Intermodal is owned in 69⋅52% by PCC SE, 13⋅94% by Hupac and 16⋅54% by minority shareholders.
