The company, in cooperation with the Italian Transmec Group, has launched a direct intermodal service between Oradea and Łódź.
The 48-hour service will initially offer two departures each way per week, before increasing to three by mid-2020.
The service will at first use containers with a maximum payload of 24t, with swap bodies introduced if there is enough demand.
Dangerous goods (RID) can also be transported on the service.
"This expansion is supporting the substantial investments made in the Oradea terminal to upgrade the facility, with the intention to accommodate new destinations in the foreseeable future," Wim Blomme, Intermodal Director, P&O Ferrymasters, said.
Danilo Montecchi, CEO, Transmec Group, added, "The new service forms part of our highly successful collaboration with P&O Ferrymasters over the last 30 years. We are already planning our next steps, while also focusing on the ongoing development of our existing intermodal services between Oradea and Zeebrugge and Piacenza."
P&O Ferrymasters plans to launch a service between Oradea and Constanța, too, and in the future further expand its network towards Bulgaria, Serbia, Greece, and Turkey.
