On 27 August 2013, the foundations were laid for the container terminal of the Lithuanian Railway LG in Vilnius. The terminal will have a capacity of 100,000 TEU. Construction costs amount to LTL 109.6 million (EUR 31.7 million). Perspectives are seen as a hinterland location for Klaipeda and as an important hub for regional distribution and international container traffic in the direction of Belarus / South Eastern Europe and Russia / Asia.
The importance of this event was underlined by the presence of Lithuanian Prime Minister Algirdas Butkevicius, Minister of Transport Rimantas Sinkevicius, the mayor of Vilnius and the Vilnius County Council. The city of Vilnius and Vilnius County jointly operate the development of the Vilnius freight center.
The feasibility study for the GVZ including the container terminal was realized by Ernst & Young Baltic, Wagener & Herbst and IPG on behalf of LG. The Director General of the LG Stasys Dailydka expressly thanked the German partners for the good cooperation in the realization of this project of national importance. Wagener & Herbst actively participated in the planning of the Lithuanian GVZ in Vilnius, Kaunas and Siauliai through market research and financial and business studies.
