In August 2013, ERS Railways carried the first trailers from Ewals Cargo Care on her Poznan railway connection from Rotterdam RSC to the container terminal in Swarzedz, near Poznan - Poland.
ERS Railways is a fully independent railway company with five offices in four countries across Europe. With a modern fleet of locomotives and over 400 leased container / Huckepack platforms they are one of the leading players in the growing European intermodal transport market.
ERS Railways provides inter alia, a direct rail service between Rotterdam RSC, Europoort and Maasvlakte and Poznan. The shuttle connects Rotterdam with the CLIP container
terminal in Swarzedz, near Poznan five times a week. The direct Rotterdam – Poznan connection contains less handlings. Next to this the transit time is 22 hours in each direction covering a distance of 1.000 km, resulting in an average speed of 50 km/h.
Because of the direct ferry connection from the UK to Rotterdam, the Poznan railway offers Ewals Cargo Care several new opportunities for transports from the UK, the Netherlands and Belgium to Poland and back. The first transport was performed as a test and now Ewals Cargo Care will investigate how they can make optimum use of this railway connection.
