• Handling capacity increased to over 150,000 TEU per year
• Two new gantry cranes installed
• Fourth PCC terminal to undergo expansion and modernization since the end of 2014
Duisburg / Gliwice (Poland), in January 2016. PCC Intermodal S.A. has completed the expansion and modernization of its container terminal in Gliwice, Poland, with the work finishing at the end of 2015 as scheduled. The terminal with an operating area of 50,000 square metres is now also equipped with two new gantry cranes. Its handling capacity has been increased to more than 150,000 TEU (twenty foot equivalent units, standard measurement for twenty-foot containers). Completion of this terminal expansion project means that Gliwice now has the most advanced logistics center in Poland’s Upper Silesia region. Around 35 kilometers from Katowice, the container terminal’s location is at the strategically favourable intersection between two trans-European transport corridors, namely Berlin/Dresden-Wrocław-Lviv-Kiev and Gdańsk-Katowice-Žilina.
With completion of the facility in Gliwice, PCC Intermodal, the lead logistics company of the PCC Group, has now seen its fourth container terminal undergo expansion and modernization within the last year. The expanded terminal in Brzeg Dolny was re-opened in September 2015. This was preceded in June by re-inauguration of the revamped terminal in Kutno (Poland). Prior to this, modernization work at the Frankfurt (Oder) terminal in Germany had been successfully completed in December 2014. The container terminal network of PCC Intermodal also includes a fifth facility in Dębica, south-east Poland. And each month, the PCC subsidiary operates more than 400 intermodal trains on national and international routes.
