New train speeds up transport to Western Europe
P&O Ferrymasters has expanded its pan-European logistics network with the introduction of a new train service from Lovosice in Czechia to Europoort - Rotterdam in the Netherlands with the option for onward sea connections to Britain.
The company will run its own trains in both directions from Lovosice allowing businesses to move goods faster and more efficiently to Western Europe.
Freight arriving in Rotterdam can then be shipped internationally or via P&O Ferries' services to multiple ports on the east coast of Britain. There will be four departures per week in each direction and the train is able to transport hazardous goods and also goods subject to customs.
The launch of the new service builds onto P&O Ferrymasters' multimodal network, which has its own train connections to Poland, Romania and Italy. (ben)
