Following the successful partnership with KLOG Logistics Solutions for its regular trains between the intermodal terminal of Bettembourg-Dudelange and the CLIP Group terminal in Poznań, CFL multimodal has launched a new intermodal service between Sète and Poznań in October 2022. With one round trip per week this connection ensures the supply of home-furnishing products for IKEA on the Spanish market and fashion garments for Inditex, owner of brands such as Zara, Bershka and Massimo Dutti, in Poznań where the Spanish company has its warehouse for online orders in central Europe.
As main traction provider, CFL cargo covers more than 2,000 km between VIIA-Sète terminal and Poznań. Captrain Polska takes over the traction in Poland. This new service transports up to 38 trailers of IKEA and Inditex products on each train. In addition, the T3000 wagons for P400 trailers enable multimodal flexibility and facilitate fast loading, connecting the Spanish and Polish markets seamlessly in just 48 hours while saving more than 12,000 tons of carbon emissions per year.
Sven Löffler, Chief Commercial Officer CFL multimodal: “We are delighted to be working continuously with KLOG, together with IKEA and Inditex, on sustainable developments. For instance, we are currently evaluating the potential expansion of this new service with more door-to-door solutions and thus a strengthening of this collaboration on future endeavors.”
Dariusz Mroczek, Category Area Transport Manager, IKEA Supply Chain Operations: "One of the key priorities for us at IKEA is to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from each product transport by an average of 70 % by 2030 compared to 2017. To achieve this goal, we must work with partners to collectively transform the transport industry.“
