Amber Train augments transport portfolio
Amber Train, an intermodal rail service launched by the Baltic States, has successfully completed the test phase. The train will now run regularly and the range of services will be augmented. The aim is to transport goods with the Amber Train from Western Europe to the Baltics within 24 hours.
Lithuanian Railways said that negotiations with partners in Poland and Finland are already taking place. Plans to introduce a special service for semi-trailers in Q2/2019 are also being hammered out.
Amber Train is a joint intermodal rail project between railway companies in Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. The train runs along the 650 km long Sestokai-Riga-Tallinn corridor in the Baltic region. (ben)
