DCT Gdańsk (DCT) has officially opened a direct rail connection to the Czech Republic in partnership with German intermodal transport operator METRANS.
The rail connection’s maiden trip successfully ran from Ostrava to Gdańskon 6 September.
The service will run three times a week with arrivals at the DCT terminal every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.
The company announced the new service will deploy 750metre-long trains for the first – instead of the usual 650 metre – raising carrying capacity by 15 per cent per train.
The rail connection is set to significantly improve logistics flow in the European region, which is crucial considering the ongoing high demand.
The additions will be advanced by the opening of its new deep-water quay in 2024.
