Baltic port investment for DB Schenker

July 26 - DB Schenker Rail Polska is investing approximately EUR22.5 million (USD29.1 million) in expanding its facilities at the Szczecin and Swinoujscie Baltic Sea ports.

In cooperation with the port authority, DB Schenker will invest in the new wharfs and cranes by 2018, which will increase transhipment capacity in the medium-term and boost growth in the exchange of goods via the ports.

Project business for heavy cargoes is important to DB Schenker Rail Polska which also handles containers, less-than carload freight and bulk cargo at the ports.

At the port of Swinoujscie, a modern Liebherr crane is being installed and the first ship carrying imported products is scheduled to pass through the port in mid-2011.

According to Christian Schreyer, member of the Management Board of DB Schenker Rail Polska responsible for logistics, the company expects port hinterland rail transport in particular to increase as a result of the port capacity expansion.
