Contargo establishes national company in Poland
The container hinterland logistics network Contargo has founded Contargo Intermodal Poland Sp.z o.o. as of November 2021. From its Warsaw location, the company with its two managing directors Marcin Czachorowski and Jürgen Albersmann will continue to drive forward the development of the Polish market.
Due to the increasing demand, the Contargo management has decided to establish its own national company in Poland. "This was the next step for us to further expand our network in Poland," says Jürgen Albersmann, Managing Director Contargo Intermodal Poland. "The presence in Poland makes it easier for us to network locally and allows us to offer solutions tailored to the market."
Among other things, Contargo Intermodal Poland offers repositioning of empty containers, regular or one-off container transports by rail from Poland to other European countries, and container trucking to seaports in Poland and terminals in Malaszewicze and Brest.
"On request, we are also happy to offer other services related to the transport and handling of containers," says Marcin Czachorowski, Managing Director Contargo Intermodal Poland. "We are also connected to global transport chains via Contargo's container hinterland network."
With an annual transport volume of 2.1 million TEU (twenty-foot equivalent units), Contargo is one of the largest container logistics networks in Europe. It integrates container transport between the western seaports, the German North Sea ports and the European hinterland. Contargo has 25 container terminals at its disposal in Germany, France and Switzerland as well as further locations in Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and Poland. The enterprise also operates its own barge and rail lines. In 2020 the workforce of 1,158 employees achieved a turnover of 513 million Euro.
