The CargoBeamer group and Calais Promotion have received a grant from the European Union up to a maximum of just over EUR 7 million for the construction of a new railroad terminal in the vicinity of Calais

This multimodal terminal is a major step in the beneficiaries’ plans to extend services on key freight routes and to strengthen the logistic functions of the hub of Calais by allowing freight trailers that normally cannot be moved by crane to be transferred from trucks onto trains and vice-versa.

The creation of the new railroad combined transport terminal, expected to be accomplished by 2022, will improve freight traffic flows beyond the city itself and into France, the UK and the rest of Europe
