Lithuania's LTG Cargo gears up for carrying semi-trailers

BC, Vilnius, 29.09.2020.Print version
- LTG Cargo, a freight transportation company that is part of Lithuania's state-owned railway group Lietuvos Gelezinkeliai (Lithuanian Railways), is getting ready to transport semi-trailers in Lithuania after carrying a pilot shipment from the port of Klaipeda to Vilnius, informed LTG Cargo.

Having arrived by ferry from Denmark, the semi-trailer was loaded onto a special train platform at the Central Klaipeda Terminal and taken to Vilnius Intermodal Terminal. Once the semi-trailer was loaded here, it was taken back to Klaipeda, the group said.

"We have successfully carried semi-trailers from Germany to Lithuania this year and we are now carrying out trials within Lithuania as well," Egidijus Lazauskas, CEO at LTG Cargo, said.

In his words, LTG Cargo plans to offer clients connections to the Scandinavian ports of Kiel, Karlshamn and Trelleborg as early as this year.

Around 3,000 semi-trailer trucks use the Vilnius-Klaipeda highway a day. Meanwhile, one train can carry around 40 semi-trailers.
