Rail transport from and to Poland






The multi-faceted thinking of transport is especially true in rail freight forwarding – transport on iron rails is one of the oldest, but still rapidly growing branches of freight forwarding. Thanks to rail container transport, it takes just 14 days to deliver cargo to and from China!

Rail forwarding is one of the most important segments of freight transport, playing an important role in the supply chain. In many countries, such as China, Russia, Germany and the United States, rail is the leading mode of transport, with a market share of between 20 and 50 per cent of the freight transport market.

Types of rail transport:

  • full wagon – the carriage of cargo in bulk in special freight wagons. Amongst others, coal, steel, cereals or ores are transported in this way.
  • container – transport of goods carried in containers. This form of rail transport can be combined with other types of transport on the same route due to the mobility of the containers.
  • less-than-truckload – this type of rail transport is used for low-volume freight.

Rail forwarding has many advantages such as low costs and high efficiency. Rail is particularly suitable for the transport of raw materials and bulk goods such as coal, oil, iron, as well as industrial products such as cars and machinery.

Rail freight transport is also important for the economic development of countries and the integration of markets. By linking national and international rail networks, countries and regions are able to cooperate and exchange goods more easily, which contributes to economic development and trade.

Despite advances in technology, rail freight is still a popular mode of transport. Most regions of the world have a well-developed rail infrastructure, making rail an efficient way to transport many types of goods. Key advantages of rail transport include:

  • lead time – rail transport is faster than sea transport, and in some areas of the world trains can reach high speeds and are faster than cars, making rail faster than road transport.
  • ability to carry bulky cargo – trains are an excellent solution for carrying bulky cargo. The payload capacity of wagons is greater than that of a truck. Rail transport is excellent for transporting bulky or loose goods.
  • ecology – choosing rail transport helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and is therefore a choice with a lower environmental impact.
  • safety – rail transport is one of the safest modes of transport both in terms of exposure of goods to shocks and theft.

Rail transport also has other advantages, which include, for example, its lower cost compared to air transport, its suitability for many types of goods or its independence from the road network and truck restrictions. The well-developed rail infrastructure makes rail a good alternative to sea or road transport.




Intermodal transport is a freight transport system that uses two or more different modes of transport. It aims to optimise transport efficiency and costs. Combining the carriage of goods by rail with other modes of transport gives great flexibility in the planning of delivery routes. For example, cargo can be delivered by road to a terminal, from where it is transferred to a train or ship and then transported by car to its final destination – international rail transport is part of the supply chain.

Intermodal transport is important in the global supply chain as it enables goods to be transported over long distances without transshipment (the goods travel in one container but on different modes of transport). A transport service involving rail transport is made possible by fixed loading units, i.e. containers. This solution optimises freight costs, reduces cost, reduces environmental impact and gives greater flexibility in the face of changing conditions or emergencies.
