The significant increase in demand for intermodal transport and the simultaneous reduction of capacity on railway lines (closures, breakdowns, investment and modernisation works carried out by infrastructure managers) have led to the filling up of inland transshipment terminals in Europe, including those managed by PCC Intermodal SA.
The current number of depot containers makes it difficult or even impossible to carry out normal handling operations at our terminals resulting in extended service times for both trains and cars. Those create further delays in deliveries, increases operating costs and causes dissatisfaction for all supply chain
In order to stop this problem from escalating further, it is necessary to immediately implement a recovery plan and reduce the stock of empty containers at terminals.
To ensure the operation of PCC Intermodal terminals, as of July 1 st 2022 we are forced to temporarily suspend accepting empty containers that have not been transported intermodal way (rail-road) within PCC Intermodal SA network.
In addition, our depot team will return to each of you individually with new depot limits, which will also apply at PCC Intermodal terminals from 01.07.2022 until further notice.
We apologize for any inconvenience and hope for your understanding. These activities are aimed at maintaining operational capabilities of our terminals and avoiding paralysis of the basic function of these facilities.
