Czech carrier introduces intermodal line
PKP Cargo International is using a new direct railway line connecting the Turkish port of Halkali on the European side of Istanbul and the recently opened terminal in Kolin (Czechia).
The companies of the PKP Cargo International Group are providing transport for Mars Logistics, a Turkish intermodal-based solution logistics service provider, on the Hungarian, Slovak and Czech sections of the network.
Trains will transport mainly parts for the automotive industry. For the time being, the trains operate once a week, but Mars Logistics plans to increase the frequency to three trains per week by the end of August 2021. The Kolin terminal was chosen because it has a large number of customers in the automotive industry. (ben)
