Expanding rail motorway services in Europe
CLIP and CFL multimodal will launch a rail motorway train between Swarzędz (Poland) and Bettembourg-Dudelange (Luxembourg) by the end of 2019. The train will start with four roundtrips per week and be opened to containers, craneable semi-trailers as well as non-craneable semi-trailers.
This train will cover a distance of more than 1,000 km and have a capacity to carry 37 intermodal units. The CLIP terminal in Swarzędz will be equipped with the Lohr railway system technology allowing to load also non-craneable trailers onto the trains.
The intermodal terminal of Bettembourg Dudelange is already equipped with two platforms and offers regular connections further south, including to Lyon, Le Boulou in France and Barcelona in Spain. (ben)
