The Polish intermodal operator, Loconi, and the container-train operator, Baltic Rail, have launched a new service connecting Gdynia and Koper, named Baltic-Adriatic Land Bridge.
Loconi, which operates five container trains weekly between Gdynia and Wrocław, and Baltic Rail, which runs three to five trains weekly between Wrocław and Koper, decided to offer a combined intermodal service between the two European hubs; With a single ticket, it will be possible for containers to travel between Gdynia, Wroclaw and Koper, transloading between trains included within the service.
The timing of the second journey will be optimised to ensure cut-off for the target sailing. Thus, the intermediate stop can also have the role of a buffer that might be convenient.
The initiative is supported by both sea terminals - the Port of Koper, Slovenia and BCT in Gdynia, Poland.
According to a statement, this solution enables connecting all the key ports in Scandinavia with the key ports in Central and East Mediterranean, worthwhile checking the Red Sea and Gulf area too.
