Duisburg / Brzeg Dolny (Poland), in October 2015. PCC Intermodal S.A. officially took into service its expanded and modernized container terminal in Brzeg Dolny (Poland) on September 24, 2015. The upgrade means the terminal’s annual handling capacity has more than doubled to 110,000 TEU (20-foot standard containers). PCC Intermodal S.A. headquartered in Gdynia (Poland), a subsidiary of PCC SE, was thus able to bring to a successful conclusion its third terminal expansion project in nine months: The Kutno terminal (Poland) was inaugurated in June of this year, again with its handling capacity more than doubled, while expansion of the Frankfurt (Oder) terminal in Germany was successfully completed in December 2014. By the end of 2015, moreover, work on a fourth terminal expansion project in Gliwice (Poland) will also come to an end.
On the occasion of the opening of the new terminal in Brzeg Dolny, PCC Intermodal S.A. also celebrated its tenth anniversary, with representatives from the world of business and politics in attendance. “Following completion of these latest expansion and modernization projects, our Polish terminals are now the most advanced in the country,” says Dariusz Stefanski, CEO of PCC Intermodal S.A. “This means that, within the last decade, we have successfully established a network of modern container terminals as a solid basis for an efficient, high-performing international intermodal logistics operation. Thanks to this investment programme, PCC Intermodal will be able to further accelerate the rapid growth of the intermodal transport industry in Poland.”
