Hungary to become major east-west gateway
The need for fast and reliable railfreight services between Asia and Europe is increasing continuously, as clearly indicated by the record number of freight trains running between China and Europe last year.
East-West Gate intermodal terminal in Fenyeslitke, Hungary and the Kazakh Euro Transit Group want to leverage this growth potential and have signed a strategic cooperation to increase railfreight traffic from Asia to Europe.
The companies will jointly offer their customers a fast and reliable transport route. With the terminals providing track-change technology, export volumes from Western Europe to Asia passing through Hungary may also increase significantly. (ben)
