September 14 (SeeNews) - Romanian transport and logistics company SLS Cargo opened its first intermodal terminal that it operates exclusively at the P3 Bucharest A1 logistics park, following a 1.9 million euro ($2 million) investment.
Located in the industrial park on the A1 motorway near Bucharest, the new terminal enhances SLS Cargo’s operational capacity, which has previously solely relied on the railway terminal in the town of Buftea, the company said in a press release on Wednesday.
Over the past three years, SLS Cargo has accumulated a total leased area of 55,000 sq m, becoming the second most significant tenant of the park owned by pan-European logistics property investor and developer P3.
"The new terminal, […], addresses the need to identify solutions to the small number of railway terminals compared to the optimal requirement for the Romanian market. […] SLS Cargo introduces the concept of a 'single window' by combining road, maritime, and air transport services with any of the storage, distribution, and customs consultancy services also in our portfolio” Mihai Stoica, managing director of SLS Cargo, said.
Intermodal transport is a strategic option for global cargo delivery as it entails the seamless transfer of freight across various transportation modes like roads, railways, and sea, without direct handling during transitions. Reduced train operation times coupled with quicker unloading and customer deliveries boost the efficiency of the new terminal.
The company estimates that the new terminal will reach an operational capacity of up to 750 containers per month, with an average of four manoeuvres per container. Each month, the terminal will be transited by fifteen trains on the Constanta Port – SLS Cargo P3 Terminal route. Major logistics parks across the west of Bucharest will be the main beneficiaries of the transported goods.
SLS Cargo started operations in 2014 when it opened its first office in Bucharest. In 2019, the company was acquired by local peer FAN Courier, which took over a majority stake.
Located approximately 13 km west of Bucharest’s city centre, P3 Bucharest A1 park boasts 380,000 sq m developed in 14 warehouses, a high voltage station and a railway terminal.
