Logistics specialist Tibbett Logistics is to open a second intermodal (road-rail) terminal in the west of Bucharest to meet growing demand across south east Europe.

The new terminal will begin operations at the beginning of November, and will be in addition to the company's existing facility in the east of Bucharest.

Located within Europolis Park Bucharest, it will handle Tibbett Logistics' own block trains between the city and the Port of Constanta, as well as trains with swap-bodies, containers, semi-trailers and tank containers to and from Western European countries. There will also be an 8,500 sq metre warehouse within the terminal, with a rail siding for unloading conventional rail wagons directly into the warehouse.

"The demand for sustainable and efficient logistics solutions is increasing across south east Europe, and interest in intermodal solutions has been growing over recent years," explains David Goldsborough, CEO of Tibbett Logistics.

The company specialises in services to the textiles, retail and other FMCG sectors.
