Today, PCC’s Kutno terminal counts among Poland’s most advanced combined transport hubs. It facilitates the fast and efficient turn-around of cargos both along east-west routes between Western and Eastern Europe, and also along the north-south axis from the Baltic ports of Gdańsk and Gdynia to the Adriatic ports of Koper and Trieste. The annual handling capacity was significantly expanded in 2015 – by 150% – to 250,000 TEU (20-foot ISO standard containers). PCC Intermodal S.A. commissioned the terminal in 2011 as the first advanced logistics and handling center in central Poland. It was the first investment project of PCC Intermodal S.A. of this magnitude.

|Project status:||Construction of the terminal it Kutno began in spring 2010. The investment project was divided into four expansion phases, the first having been completed with the official inauguration of the terminal on September 30, 2011. From the first day of operations, there were three lifting appliances (reach-stackers) in operation, each with a load capacity (SWL) of 45 metric tons. Annual handling capacity was 100,000 TEU. 2015 saw completion of the fourth expansion phase. In June 2015, PCC Intermodal S.A. successfully concluded the expansion and optimization work on the terminal with the installation of two gantry cranes, more than doubling the terminal’s annual handling capacity to 250,000 TEU. The new gantry cranes operate at speeds of up to 160 metres per minute, offer a span of 40 metres and a maximum load capacity (SWL) of 41 metric tons, all of which means fast cargo turn-around times. In addition, there are also now six reach-stackers in operation for loading and unloading the container trains on the four spur tracks, each of which is 700 metres long.|
