ERS further increases frequency of Poland shuttle


ERS Railways has increased the frequency of its rail service between the port of Rotterdam and the CLIP Terminal near Poznan to 8 per week. In June, the frequency had already risen to six. Eight trips per week in both directions is the equivalent of 600 trailers. This will reduce the number of truck journeys by road, making a difference of 30,000 tonnes of CO2 a year.
According to ERS, the United Kingdom in particular is important for Dutch and Polish customers. The company can offer multimodal transport solutions for, for example, mega trailers between Poland and the United Kingdom, so that the CLIP Terminal is linked directly with the RSC Rotterdam and the P&O Ferries Terminal/Stena Terminal with several ferry departures a day to various destinations.
The high frequency means that the shuttle is not only an attractive alternative to transport by road, but also short sea. As of 1 January, the North Sea and the Baltic Sea will be Sulphur Emission Control Areas (SECA). As a result, fuel costs will rise for transport by sea within Europe.
ERS Railways is leasing new TWIN II double pocket wagons for this route. These can transport mega trailers produced by all the big European trailer builders and are ‘silent’. They lower the noise level from 92 to 82 decibels, the equivalent of halving the noise perceived by people living nearby. More than 75% of the wagons which are currently used on the Rotterdam-Poznan route are fitted with so-called silent brake blocks.
