PEARL’s weekly Liner trains depart from Piraeus Container Terminal, to the respective city’s Intermodal Terminal (for efficient and safe interchange between road and rail transport). Each liner train is shunted to serve, up to 76 TEUs, to any Central & South Eastern Europe destination.
PEARL introduces a holistic approach for servicing the needs of the market, by setting up a sophisticated “Hub & Spoke” planning for rail terminals. A comprehensive network of reliable “end terminals” will serve the distribution of the demand in the selected area.
PEARL, through the extended rail network of Central Europe and the Balkans area, will achieve the minimization of road-legs by decreasing in parallel the number of kilometers on truck.
Destinations with a range up to 200km from the rail terminal can be served by road transport.
First mile is the transport from the client premises to the PEARL’s terminal. PEARL cooperates with Road Transporters and Rail Operators in the indented markets.
Last mile is the transport from the final rail terminal to customer premises.
PEARL cooperates with Road Transporters in the indented markets in order to implement door-to-door services.
