Lithuanian national railway’s freight business LTG Cargo is to launch a service carrying containers and semi-trailers from the Kaunas Intermodal Terminal to Duisburg in Germany on April 4.
Trains with a capacity of up to 36 semi-trailers and containers will run thrice-weekly on the 1 500 km route. This will be LTG Cargo’s first westward service operating in three countries, with operations in Poland and Germany handled by its LTG Cargo Polska subsidiary.
‘We are actively working to offer the market as many opportunities as possible for rail connections with the west’, said CEO Eglė Šimė.
Duisburg offers onward connections to terminals in Germany, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands and Sweden, and ‘there is a possibility of rail links with France or even Great Britain’, said Šimė.
LTG Cargo is also developing plans to co-operate with new customers in Poland and to help Lithuanian businesses import raw materials from central European countries.
