Bridging Rail and Road
Kouvola RRT is a modern inter and multimodal terminal that serves equally the growing needs of national and international freight traffic.
The futureproof Kouvola RRT enables the efficient loading of even extra-long trains (1,100 m) as well as the accompanying services for feeder and distribution traffic. As the terminal kicks off, Kouvola will fortify its position as a dependable, safe, cost-effective, and smart logistics solution for Finland’s domestic transport as well as traffic to the Baltics, Scandinavia, Europe, and Asia.
Administered by Railgate Finland Ltd., Kouvola Rail and Road Terminal functions under ‘open access’ principles where connections, capacity, and services are equally accessible for all operators.
Railgate Finland main gate area
There are three gates to Kouvola RRT area, with the main gate – located on the west side of the terminal – being the most dominant. In fact, the main gate is the functional center of the terminal with all the services featured in the gate building.
The side gate B is meant for the traffic of the regular clients and, when necessary, for moving machinery between RRT and the nearby business area. Located between these two, on the north side of the terminal, there is the machinery gate C, and route to the business area.
Container loading / unloading
In addition to containers, the terminal can handle various units in accordance to container standard such as load platforms (with load), tank containers, freezer containers, classified substance containers, hazardous materials/IMO label containers, trailers, trucks (with hazmat transport). As rail cargo, one can also manage vehicles, work equipment, construction machinery and various project loads.
Handling reefer and liquid containers
Reefer containers may be stored in Kouvola RRT.
