PCC Marketing and Development Director Monika Konsor-Fąferek highlighted that the rail network is fully connected, setting as an example the situation in Lower Silesia region, where the chemical industry is increasing, on the contrary to food producers being abundant.
Mrs Konsor-Fąferek concluded that
"When we decided to invest in Kutno Terminal in Central Poland in 2009, there were actually only cornfields over there. Almost forty production companies and warehouses are now established there, because the area is now so accessible. This means we’re located really close to industry, but industry is also coming to us."
