14. 12. 10

A demonstration of the new Intermodal terminal was performed for the local Logistics network in Karlshamn during a breakfast meeting. The visitors could see how the operation is done, where brand new Semitrailers from DFDS Logistics in Karlshamn were lifted on/of Intermodal Pocket-Wagons owned by Green Cargo who offer Daily service to/from Karlshamn.

The new terminal has capacity for two full length Intermodal trails. Containers and trailers can be lifted over two tracks and there are vast depot areas. - The new terminal is an important step to grow within the unitized cargo segment and increase these flows via Port of Karlshamn. The efficiency and economy of scale is increased considerably which promote more cargo by rail, says Mr Mats Olsson, CEO at Port of Karlshamn   The terminal will be operated by Karlshamn Kombiterminal AB, a new Company fully owned by Karlshamns Hamn AB (Port of Karlshamn). Totally more than 50 million SEK was invested, whereof EU have co-financed 10 million SEK.   The terminal was constructed by PEAB, contracted by the Municipality of Karlshamn.
