Bulgaria's Gopet Starts First Romania-Poland Intermodal Block Train Service

Sofia-based freight forwarding company Gopet Trans said it has launched the first intermodal block train service linking Romania and Poland. The first train test was launched on July 11 and Gopet Trans currently operates a weekly service with about 30 train units between two of the largest markets in Central and Eastern Europe, the company said in a statement on Thursday. Gopet Trans plans to increase the frequency to two trains per week, and the capacity to 40 units per train by the end of 2018. The route between the two countries covers approximately 1,000 km, crossing four borders, in 36 hours of transit time between the freight terminal in Romania's Oradea and Poland's Spedcont terminal near Lodz. This new connection opens up options to further connect with the Scandinavia region via an already existing line from the Polish cities of Lodz and Gdynia. As for the Balkans, customers can benefit from Gopet's existing block train running from Romania's Curtici to Bulgaria's Stara Zagora via Ruse, with further connection via road with own fleet making it easier to reach Sofia or Greece, the company said.
