80% of freight trains on Rail Baltica will be intermodal


Two to three cargo trains per hour will run at a maximum speed up to 120 km/h on the Rail Baltica line in future, according to the company’s operation plan for 2026-2056 published by promoter RB Rail.

 

The axle load of the trains is estimated at 25 t and the length of trains at 1,050 m. To facilitate freight movement on the line, three large-scale multimodal terminals are being developed – in Muuga (Estonia), Salaspils (Latvia) and Palemonas (Lithuania).

 

It is expected that 80% of freight trains on Rail Baltica will be intermodal trains, allowing logistics operators to move cargoes from roads to rail by putting containers and trucks on wagons. (ben)
