The BtoUK project aimed to create viable road-rail connections between Bulgaria, Romania and Western Europe. First deliveries were done to UK. The project was conducted with INEA support under a Marco Polo program.
Later, the coverage of our intermodal service was extended by including traffic to Belgium, Netherlands, Ruhr area of Germany and large parts of Northern France.
Block train BG <> RO
First intermodal train between Ruse, Bulgaria, and Curtici, Romania, crossed the border on July 20th, 2014. Gopet organized and fully managed the block train which represented an important milestone of our project B2UK, introduction and management of rail connections between Eastern and Western Europe.
Flows on this route consolidated and allowed extensions of the line to Stara Zagora, as well as the introduction of a new Gopet block train between Curtici and Chiajna, Bucharest which opens up the connection with Constanta Port.
Intermodal activities extended also to Western Europe to terminals such as Genk, Zeebrugge, and Duisburg, enabling us to offer to clients a wider mix of transportation solutions.
