Terminal Vest Oradea expands facilities and services

Terminal Vest in Oradea, Romania, is on the set of expansion due to increased intermodal demand between the region and western Europe. The almost tripled roundtrips offered by the terminal and the addition of new intermodal services in the near future increase the need for more investments.

Terminal Vest in Oradea was established in 2016 as a joint venture of P&O Ferrymasters and Transmec group, managed by the company Intermodal Vest. The two companies have a long-standing cooperation, resulting in the terminal’s establishment to enhance intermodal traffic between Romania and central, western and northern Europe.

Since then, the terminal has seen many investments by the two companies in fleet capacity and intermodal services. So far, the two companies have invested more than 6,5 million euros in developing their hub and have launched connections among others with Lodz in Poland, Piacenza in Italy, Zeebrugge in Belgium and Herne and Stuttgart in Germany.

More space and services

As a result of the growing demand for intermodal services in Romania, which is currently investing heavily in rail infrastructure and intermodal links from the Black Sea, Terminal Vest will expand its facilities. “An additional 19,000 square metres of parking will increase trailer capacity, whilst a fourth reach stacker and an extra tow yard truck are also being introduced”, explained Transmec.

Simultaneously, the P&O Ferrymasters and TRansmec will boost connectivity with western destinations. For instance, the already existing link with Zeebrugge will expand with a third weekly roundtrip to serve better connections with the UK. On top of that, in late spring, the two partners aim to launch a link with the Battemburg terminal in Luxemburg that will offer three roundtrips per week.
