Public Logistics Centres
In order to develop intermodal freight transport in Lithuania, public logistics centres are being founded in Vilnius (nearby Vaidotai Marshalling Yard) and Kaunas. The EU financial assistance of the Cohesion Fund will be used for establishing infrastructure necessary for said centres: modern overland intermodal terminals, exclusive in the region, will be built, and conditions will be created for setting up companies on the territory of the terminal engaged in transport, logistics or other freight related activities. This conception is expected to encourage commercial cooperation among transport modes, and more freight will be carried by rail which is more cost-efficient and environmental friendly mode of transport.
Container traffic is becoming the main trend in developing freight services due to its versatility.
The implementation of intermodal projects “Saulė” (Sun) and “Merkurijus” (Mercury) has begun.
