CFL Multimodal from Luxembourg has launched a new rail freight service between Sète, in southern France, and Poznan, in Western Poland. For now, there will be one roundtrip per week, as a spokesperson from CFL told Portuguese company KLOG will be the sole customer for the service.

The service connects the VIIA terminal in Sète with the CLIP terminal in Poznan. CFL Cargo will take care of traction until the Polish border, from where the train will be tractioned by Captrain Polska. The convoy will run through France and Germany before reaching Poland, with total transit time revolving around two days and door-to-door service taking roughly three days.

“The crossing points during the route are the following: Sète – Avignon – Siblin – Dijon/Perrigny – Neufchâteau – Hagondange – Happach – Ehrang – Koblenz – Eisenach – Horka Grenze – Węgliniec – Breclav – Poznan,” the CFL source specified.

As the spokesperson highlighted, the train will be transporting fast consumer goods for different sectors. The goods departing from Sète are transported on the road from various warehouses in Spain, namely the Madrid and Barcelona areas. When it comes to Poland, the goods are gathered from facilities in the Warsaw and Poznan areas. ” It is nevertheless our objective to work, with our customer, on reducing the road transport part in the future,” the spokesperson highlighted.

This is not the only CFL service that connects Western Europe to Poland. As the spokesperson pointed out, CFL offers “the intermodal connection Bettembourg – Poznan with three roundtrips per week with daily connections to Lyon and Spain”.

Yes, nearness and benefitting of nearness, indeed is relying of quality at infrastructure and transports.
As mere goal of EU was/is adding edge, by benefitting of nearness within a big, created, “domestic” market – and now, in light of congestions, frustrations – and Brexit…, – regrettably, simply: Commission has failed!
