Railway freight forwarding. It is the core business activity of the company. We carry out freight forwarding services related to transportation of all types of goods by rail, both in single wagons, groups of wagons and as full trainloads. We organise freight transport in Poland, in other countries of Western and Southern Europe and former CIS countries. We mostly use the services of PKP CARGO S.A. — the sole shareholder of PKP CARGO CONNECT, and the services of other renowned railway carriers. We use our own wagons TALNS type 441Vb for transporting bulk commodities including grains and biomass.
Intermodal freight forwarding. We offer intermodal solutions using maritime, road and predominantly railway transport that is the main element of “intermodal” services. We operate permanent railway connections both international and domestic — from Polish seaports to a network of own and cooperating land terminals.
Road freight forwarding. We offer full truckload and partial truckload transport on domestic and international routes. We provide transport of neutral and dangerous goods, including temperature control, palletised and bulk cargo (dump trucks). We have 13.6 m long tarpaulin, refrigerated, coilmulde, dump trucks and 1.5 t and 3.5 t cars. The road transport offer of PKP CARGO CONNECT covers both the countries of Western, Southern, Central East Europe, Scandinavia, Russia, Ukraine, Belarus as well as Asian countries, among other states Kazakhstan and Turkey.
Oversized freight transport. We are able to supply any type of oversized cargo exceeding standard transport dimensions and weight to any destination in Poland and in the world. Thanks to our long-term experience in organizing transports of oversized cargo, we are able to design the optimum solutions regarding the delivery of goods to customers and perform highest quality services. We are experienced in organizing transports of metallurgical machines and equipment, agricultural equipment, vessel shafts, motor vehicles, and energy sector cargo. We also organize transport of rail vehicles for the needs of leading European manufacturers.
Ferry freight forwarding. We have access to state-of-the-art sea ferries, railway wagons and other machinery improving cargo transport at all stages, thanks to which we can supply anything — including dangerous goods and oversized cargo — to and from Scandinavia without the necessity of transshipment at the port. Ferry freight forwarding carried out by the company allows safe, fast transports to Scandinavia, effective in terms of organisation, with no need for transshipment and performed at optimized cost.
Customs agencies. Since 2009, PKP CARGO CONNECT has been a certified Authorised Economic Operator (AEO). The efficient performance of the company is guaranteed by a network of fourteen customs agencies and numerous customs warehouses and temporary storage facilities throughout Poland. We have customs securities that are worth millions for all customs procedures.
Maritime freight forwarding. We organise import and export of containerised cargo to all world destinations, with a special focus on the Far East and the USA, via the main sea ports in Poland (Gdańsk, Gdynia, Szczecin) and Germany (Hamburg, Bremerhaven). We perform and supervise all port operations, including transshipment of goods, stripping of containers, delivery for customs inspection, sealing of containers, and preparation of vessel documentation.
Terminal services and warehouse logistics. We have a network of container and conventional terminals thanks to which we can offer a complete range of logistics services to our customers. Our terminals in Małaszewicze, Dorohusk and Medyka handle streams of cargo from the east. Within their premises we handle all types of conventional materials, mainly grains, coal, timber, metals and fertilizers. Our container terminals are located in the main economic centres of Poland: Silesia, Greater Poland and Mazovia. They provide end-to-end intermodal services: railway transport, motor transport as well as transshipment and storage of containers.
