    AWT completed stage III of modernization and expansion of the Paskov Terminal

    The company AWT from the PKP CARGO Group completed stage III of The Paskov Terminal modernization. A modern intermodal transshipment point in Paskov of 70,000 m2, with the capacity of 4,800 TEU and rail tracks of 3x 270 m and 2x 375 m is situated close to industrial zones and borders with Poland and Slovakia. In the Paskov Terminal AWT offers its customers comprehensive services associated with intermodal transshipment of goods.

    Strategic position in the heart of Europe allows for easy and fast connection to important European ports and terminals. It is situated close to the highway and it is connected to the national railway network. So far, the Terminal construction cost is approximately CZK 450 mil, of which CZK 151 mil. is EU subsidy and CZK 12 mil. is from Czech Ministries. There were 165 thousand manipulations performed in the Terminal in 2018.

    The Terminal serves AWT as well as external entities and offers all activities associated with transshipment, collection, delivery, light repairs of containers, dispatch of trains and storage of containers on the premises, then also customs services situated on the premises.

    In this Terminal AWT has nine reach stackers for containers with the possibilities of stacking the containers in up to five layers and it is possible to handle not only standard ISO containers but also road semi-trailers and swap bodies. There is parking space for 130 semi-trailers, connection for refrigerator containers and special place for containers with hazardous goods in the Terminal. It also includes a modern control center for central control, customs office, declaration and other subsequent external services and entities.

    The Terminal was founded in 2007, whereas stage I of expansion and modernization was in 2008-2009 and stage II in 2011-2012. Stage III of the Terminal modernization started in February 2018, during which the handling area doubled to 70 thousand m2 and capacity to 4,800 TEU and two new tracks 375 m long were built. Investment in stage III modernization was CZK 230 mil., of which EU subsidy was CZK 151 mil. The whole modernization will be completed in 2020 by reconstruction of the adjacent railway siding and modification of four tracks to 750 m length, which will enable accepting block container trains.

    The Terminal currently serves ten big customers, among which are for example Maersk, MSC, COSCO, EKOL or LKW Walter. Approximately 14 thousand manipulations with containers and semi-trailers are performed in the Terminal every month.

    Stage IV of Terminal modernization and expansion is currently being planned, which should start in July 2019 by demolition of adjacent buildings of the former Paskov Mine. The demolition is supposed to be completed by the end of 2020, when the handling area will be increased by approx. 30 thousand m2 and it will be used as parking place for road semi-trailers.

    Further modernization, expansion and paving of handling areas will require subsequent investment. When stage IV is completed the final Terminal area will be 150 thousand m2. There will be also another terminal service track 400 m long, which is now part of the railway siding, and the Terminal will have a total capacity of 10 thousand TEU.
