Hupac’s Brwinow terminal advances with construction
Hupac’s terminal in Brwinow, near Warsaw, Poland, is getting closer to the final stages of construction. Works on the site started just a year ago, while the terminal will be ready for operations in just a few months from now.
Hupac shared pictures from the construction procedures through a LinkedIn post. It is visible that works are advancing. The first terminal buildings are shaping up while the materials needed for the rail track construction are already in the location.
The new transhipment terminal will allow for the consolidation of trains to Russia and China carrying goods from all over Europe. Many intermodal trains depart to Asia from central Poland, and many trains return through the popular border crossing between Belarus and Russia. The operator will be able to handle 740 metre long trains on four transhipment tracks at this centrally located facility.
Terminals as connecting points
Rail freight terminals are crucial for the development of comprehensive and efficient networks. The industry is already well aware of this fact. However, Michael Stahlhut, the CEO of Hupac Group, provided another perspective of what terminals could mean.
“In the spirit of a deeper connected Europe, we are going on to build up our new Terminal in Brwinow. Thanks to all the helping hands, the idea is becoming more and more reality. We could not stop building up connections to industries and urban areas in a joined Europe, this is the key to living together,” he underlined in a LinkedIn post.
In a challenging period with ongoing crises, Hupac underlines the positive influence and power that rail freight can have in bringing the world together and connecting the dots when things seem harsh. Or, as the company framed it, rail freight can help ” build the future of a connected, prosperous & sustainable world”.
