The terminal is located next to the largest railway marshalling station in Lithuania, Vaidotai, making it the main transit centre between East and West. During a working day, the terminal is capable of loading 168 TEUs.
Vilnius Intermodal Terminal creates opportunities for the integration of Lithuania into the common transport network of the European Union and creates conditions for the interaction of various types of transport. The project “Design and construction of an intermodal terminal in the Vilnius Public Logistics Centre” was completed in 2014. It was implemented by the Lietuvos Geležinkeliai company with the support of the EU Cohesion Fund.
Vision and goal
- Lithuania is the strongest logistics centre in the Baltic States;
- A hub of freight transport between East and West;
The territory of Vaidotai was chosen due to two factors – the railway passing by (the largest railway marshalling station in Lithuania), and the planned construction of the southern bypass of Vilnius near this area. It will be possible to transport freight by rail conveniently and quickly to and from the port of Klaipėda.
