Schavemaker Rail Terminal and Polzug collaboration

Starting in June, HHLA Gesellschaft Polzug will add the Schavemaker inland terminal at Wrocław to their network. This collaboration will lead to more trains passing through the terminal per week in South-West Poland. This allows both companies to increase their flexibility and this will contribute to a consolidation of Polish domestic traffic.

Polzug has existing terminals in Poznań, Dąbrowa Górnicza and
Pruszków. The Polzug network now provides Wrocław with access to large port sites in Europe such as Hamburg and Antwerp.

Its geographical location next to the A4 motorway provides ideal accessibility to the terminal and thus also to connect to remoter areas. In addition to storage, transshipment, pre-carriage and on-carriage, it is possible to offer fully customized logistics solutions with EDI connections, goods clearing customs up to transporting heavy goods.

We look forward to working with Polzug. Partnering allows both of us to grow at the same time. The terminal was recently renovated and expanded. 400 metres of rail have been added, 40,000 m² of terminal infrastructure has been renovated, the storage capacity has doubled to 3,500 TEU and an electric Gantry Crane is currently being installed.

“All of this contributes to more efficient transshipment with containers and trailers. We can now fulfil our growth ambitions”, says managing director Rico Schavemaker.

“The addition of the terminal in Wrocław is a fantastic addition to our transport network. Our clients will benefit enormously now that we can also offer them Polzug service and quality in Wrocław. The connection to this terminal is particularly attractive to clients who previously used road transport to transport their goods to the major German and Polish ports. By partnering with Schavemaker, we increase our flexibility and reduce costs, which allows us to strengthen our competitive position”, said Peter Plewa managing director of Polzug.
