Lineas and H.Essers are set to launch a rail terminal in Belgium, allowing for an easier cargo shift from road to rail.
The link is expected to reduce CO2 emissions by 90% and will connect Genk to Triëste in the North of Italy.
H.Essers Railport Genk forms part of the Belgian Euro Terminal Genk, which was earlier owned by Lineas and LRM.
“The H.Essers Railport will allow customers in the Genk area to more easily shift to rail.”
Lineas Intermodal managing director Sam Bruynseels said: “The H.Essers Railport will allow customers in the Genk area to more easily shift to rail and use the existing and future direct connections out of Genk.
“Moreover, they can easily connect to the rest of Europe through the Lineas Green Xpress Network via Antwerp.”
H.Essers and Lineas will market the H.Essers Railport Genk terminal to develop domestic rail connections Genk-Antwerp and Antwerp-Ghent-Zeebrugge. This will assure better rail freight transport between Genk and the port cities.
It will be secured and equipped in accordance with the highest standards to handle chemical, pharmaceutical and other high-value products.
The railway will be used for secured/cold-chain transports to Greece and Turkey.
Lineas and H.Essers have been working on the Belgium-Romania rail freight connection for several years. The collaboration was strengthened with the joint launch of the new regular and direct open freight train.
