Let´s take a closer look at the Rotterdam-Poznan-Shuttle, our latest project for P&O Ferrymasters and Erontrans Logistics Services and its benefits for our environment.
On April 18th 2017 LTE-NL has started a new train shuttle from Rotterdam (NL) to Poznan (PL). The shuttle is operated on behalf of P&O Ferrymasters und Erontrans Logistics Services. At four roundtrips per week we move trailers from the P&O-Terminal in Rotterdam to the Poznan CLIP-Terminal Swarzedz (via Emmerich and Frankfurt/Oder) as an A-B connection. A significant part of the trailers come from or move to England by ferry.
Let us give you some figures:
Each train transports 36 trailers.
On the road a trailer would travel approx. 1.000km.
So one train equals approx. 36.000km not driven by truck.
But remember: 4 rotations (one rotation = 2 directions) per week,
that makes it: 36.000km x 2 directions x 4 rotations, or in short:
288.000km per week!
That´s a lot of km saved.
We transport for our environment.
