Be­laru­sian Rail­ways and a pri­vate Pol­ish for­warder CTL Lo­gis­tics Sp. have started trans­ship­ping stone coal at the Ne­meishchizna sta­tion (Grodno District), where a Be­laru­sian-pol­ish ter­mi­nal Belpol­lo­gis­tics was opened this year.

The project is an ex­am­ple of mu­tu­ally ben­e­fi­cial co­op­er­a­tion be­tween the pri­vate Pol­ish for­warder and Be­laru­sian Rail­ways, at­tract­ing additional tran­sit of goods to the main line. It is im­por­tant that CTL Lo­gis­tics op­er­ates 1,435mm gage car­riages on the ter­ri­tory of Be­larus.

Belpol­lo­gis­tics was es­tab­lished in 2009 to build a ter­mi­nal for trans­ship­ment and stor­age of bulk and hard goods. The first phase of the project has al­ready been com­pleted. A plat­form for over­load­ing, sort­ing and stor­age of coal was com­mis­sioned, the nec­es­sary equip­ment was pur­chased. Two tracks (with a 1,520mm and 1,435mm rails) were laid, bridge bal­ances were in­stalled.
