Polska Grupa Energetyczna (PGE) and its subsidiary Betrans have signed a letter of intent with PKP Cargo Terminale (a subsidiary of PKP Cargo) regarding cooperation in the establishment of the Combined Transport Consortium (KTK) at the planned multimodal terminal in Karsznice (zduńskowolski district), PGE reported. KTK will be a platform for cooperation for the development of the transport sector and modern multimodal solutions.
“Thanks to the establishment of the Combined Transport Consortium, PGE will participate in the creation of a modern transport system that uses the reloading and storage potential of the terminals belonging to PKP Cargo Terminale. It is also another important element on the map of transformation of the Bełchatów region. The aim of the Combined Transport Consortium is to increase the share of logistics services in the Łódź Province and central Poland. This will contribute to the creation of new jobs. This project also has an environmental dimension – reducing road transport in favor of rail transport will contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions, ”said Wojciech Dąbrowski, president of PGE.
“PKP Cargo Terminale is building one of the largest terminal ports in central Poland, which is why each cooperation in the field of securing supply chains for enterprises increases the level of safety of goods transport and the functioning of enterprises, in this case from the Łódzkie voivodeship, Zduńska Wola poviat and neighboring poviats, and the economy of our country. We hope that cooperation with our partners will also contribute to the development of small and medium-sized transport enterprises and the Multimodal Terminal in Zduńska Wola – Karsznice, ”added the president of PKP Cargo Terminale, Jacek Rutkowski.
