A group of Dutch companies, including the Port of Rotterdam Authority, in partnership with government departments, aims to develop an intermodal rail service to the Southern Polish industrial region of Silesia.
For this purpose, the companies have established a Partners for International Business covenant. Besides the Port Authority, this includes Boekesteijn Transport Service, Clip Logistics, ERS Railways, Royal Dutch Transport Federation, Nijman/Zeetank, Nijhof Wassink, Panteia, Seacon Logistics Group and Van den Bosch.
The covenant has a budget of 600,000 euro and is supported by the Netherlands Enterprise Agency and the Dutch Embassy in Warsaw. A previous Linked-by-Rail partnership delivered a shuttle service with six trains per week between Rotterdam and Poznan.
