In less than two weeks Hupac will be operating its first direct service between Warsaw and Rotterdam. The shuttle train will make the first journey on 2 May with a frequency of two roundtrips per week. To be precise, it connects the new Hupac terminal in Brwinów, just outside Warsaw with the Rotterdam CLdN.

From Rotterdam, Hupac says it provides a smooth connection to the UK, Ireland and Portugal, and the same in the opposite direction. “Quick transit time, quality and smooth direct connection to vessels for the UK, Ireland and Portugal are focal points for the new service”, the operator says.

New terminal

Hupac inaugurated its terminal in Brwinów, just outside Warsaw in Poland on 7 September last year. A few weeks later, the first trains started to depart and arrive at the new facility. Currently, it operates connections to Poznan (Poland), Duisburg (Germany) and Antwerp (Belgium) in Europe. It also operates connections to Brest (Belarus), carving out a place on the New Silk Road.
