Linked-by-Rail gives impulse to rail transport the Netherlands-Poland

A group of Dutch companies is coming together again to give the rail transport between the Netherlands and Poland an impulse. An earlier project was improving the rail transport between Rotterdam and Poznan. The product is focussing on the goods transport between the Netherlands and the southern Polish industrial area Silesia. 

On December 7 Eva Dekker of and secretary of the consortium Adrian Roest Crollius (Panteia) signed the Partners for International Business covenant focussed on improving the rail transport between the Netherlands and Poland.

Opportunities throughout Poland
The previous Linked-by-Rail partnership resulted in a very attractive shuttle train link between the Rotterdam port and Poznan. At the moment 6 trains per week travel this connection. These trains are a reduction of 80% of the CO2 emission compared to trucks. There are also large opportunities in southern Poland and a direct and quick train connection is possible. To do this, trade barriers and technical barriers will have to be settled and there will have to be investment in the knowledge of transfer to Polish stakeholders.

The parties involved at: Boekesteijn Transport Service, Clip Logistics Sp, ERS Railways B.V., Koninklijk Nederlands Vervoer, Nijman/Zeetank, Nijhof Wassink B.V., Panteia, Rotterdam Havenbedrijf, Seacon Logistics Group B.V. and Van den Bosch.The National Office for Entrepreneurial Netherlands, the Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment and the Dutch Embassy in Warsaw support the three year plan of action.

Partners for International Business
The Dutch government is entering into a partnership with business life with the service provider Partners for International Business (PIB). PIB focuses on groups of companies, sometimes complemented with knowledge institutions, who want to enter a foreign market together. They work from a tuned strategy instead of individual activities. The government can try to remove trade and investment barriers through economic diplomacy, so that businesses can seize opportunities.

PIB focuses on Dutch companies from the Top sectors (Energy, Life Sciences & Health, Creative Industry, Water, Agrofood, Horticulture and Propagation Materials, High Tech Systems and Materials, Logistics and Chemistry) and a number of focus countries.
