    Growing traffic on the Silk Road


Błonie, 8 Nevember 2018
The transport and transhipment of products from China has been growing dynamically and everything is indicating that the trade on the New Silk Road will grow even further. SPEDCONT has significantly increased the capacity of the transhipment terminal in Łódź in order to handle even more trains from China.

Nearly five years ago the project to ship goods along the New Silk Road was launched and the first Łódź-Chengdu connection was set up. The New Silk Road created opportunities that have previously been unknown and it had a beneficial impact on the development of many companies. One of them is SPEDCONT, a company from the PEKAES Group, which for several years has been successfully handling containers arriving in Poland and leaving our country to be shipped to China in its terminal in Łódź.

The first train from Łódź to Chinese Chengdu left in 2013. Railway transports from China took place once a week and covered mainly imports. At the moment, the SPEDCONT terminal in Łódź handles transports in both directions. In 2016, 250 trains arrived at and departed from our terminal, whereas in 2017, there were as many as 500 of them. This year the results are promising – we are expecting another record,” states Marcin Dobruchowski, CEO of SPEDCONT.

During the five years, the volume of connections linking Poland and Europe with China has grown. Currently all trains travelling from China to Europe cross our country. Each container with goods is equipped with a GPS transmitter, thanks to which the transport is monitored along the entire route.

The PEKAES Group is also developing cooperation in customs services and railway LCL transport on the China-Europe-China route.
For the last five years we have invested considerable funds in order to adapt to the quickly changing conditions on the market and to be able to accept the growing volume of goods from China. We have proposed a comprehensive service to the Chinese party, encompassing the customs service, terminal service, domestic and international road transport,” admits Maciej Bachman, CEO of PEKAES.

The SPEDCONT Łódź terminal is currently one of the largest such facilities in Poland. Its excellent location in the very centre of the country makes it possible for the company to efficiently distribute goods. The company ended another stage of expansion of the Łódź terminal which consists in extending the storage yard area by 2.5 ha and putting another overhead crane into operation. The fleet of container semitrailers was also increased. All these investments are supposed to further reinforce SPEDCONT’s potential in the cooperation with counterparties from the Middle Kingdom.

The PEKAES Group is a loading logistics group, comprising the following companies: PEKAES Sp. z o.o.
Chemikals Sp. z o.o., Spedycja Polska SPEDCONT Sp. z o.o.

PEKAES increase the warehouse space in Mazovia
PEKAES, a leading logistics operator, opened an additional high bay warehouse in Pass near Warsaw Branch Office. The building is designated to serve contract logistics projects. PEKAES Group plans to make further investments in new distribution terminal this year.  

An additional PEKAES logistics warehouse in the Warsaw Branch allows for both the on-shelf storage and block stacking of goods. The building is managed by a modern WMS system. 

Due to the rapid increase in volumes as part of LTL distribution, we decided to increase the warehouse space of the Warsaw Branch. We moved operations related to contract logistics to a new building located in Pass near Warsaw Branch, thus increasing the available space in the Warsaw distribution terminal. I would like to add that this year, we are planning further investments in terminal infrastructure – in February we will open another distribution terminal in western Poland – said Maciej Bachman, the CEO of PEKAES Group.

The newly opened PEKAES warehouse is located in close proximity to the distribution terminal of the Warsaw Branch.
