Baltic Transport 2012 highlights - First intermodal trains by a shipping line

Shipping lines entering both port/terminal and overland transport services is nothing new in the global scale, but so far none of the shipping operators in the Baltic Sea has initiated their own open-access, regular intermodal trains.

Not until 2012! Maersk Line started two container services from Gdańsk to the South of Poland as an intermodal operator (traction provided by two independent carriers). The "older brother" (‘Maersk Amber Express’) took off in February and from that time on links the Deepwater Container Terminal Gdańsk with Schavemaker's terminal in Kąty Wrocławskie. The second service – ‘Maersk Baltic Express’ – kicked off one month later and connects DCT Gdańsk with Euroterminal Sławków in southern Poland. The trains run two times per week in both directions and the services’ timetables are synchronized with the arrivals of the company’s container ships in Gdańsk.

Maersk’s network of Baltic intermodal services can be viewed on the Baltic Transport Maps interactive portal under this link
