Hupac will launch a new shuttle train service between Belgium and Poland. Starting on 8 November, three weekly trains will connect the Combinant Terminal in Antwerp with the Metrans terminal in Poznan/Gadki. This service is expected to benefit connections between Poland and Spain, since Hupac has a connection between Antwerp and Barcelona as well.

Moreover, the Swiss company has further connections from Poznan to Warsaw, Wroclaw, and Katowice. Trains going in both directions are scheduled for Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. The service is also suitable for P400 profile. Sources from Hupac say that service will likely benefit the chemical and the automotive sector.

Hupac is not the first company to try and connect Poland with Spain. CFL Multimodal from Luxembourg has launched a new rail freight service between Sète, in southern France, and Poznan, in Western Poland. The goods departing from Sète are transported on the road from various warehouses in Spain, namely the Madrid and Barcelona areas.
