The new terminal will be located beside the port’s ro-ro terminals. From the terminals, trailers can be transported to a variety of destinations, including the United Kingdom and Belgium.
The intermodal terminal will have six tracks. Two tracks will be used for marshalling and four will be allocated for loading and unloading trains using two rail cranes. Fully operational, the terminal will have the capacity to simultaneously handle two trains 560-730 m in length and four trains 420 m in length.
Both trailers and containers will be handled at the combi terminal although the focus will be on trailers.
Around 70 per cent of the freight that will be handled at the terminal will be related to the port, Volvo or other companies located nearby.
