Eurogate Intermodal reinforces Southeast European trades

Eurogate Intermodal (EGIM) is expanding its intermodal transport network and reinforcing Munich as a hub for rail transports to Europe’s southern ports, the Balkan states and Turkey. As of now, EGIM offers two weekly connections between Munich and Budapest with block trains to Budapest-BILK freight station in a transit time of less than 24 hours without stops.

In addition to this route, EGIM operates two weekly services from Budapest to Istanbul (Halkali) in Turkey. Customers show a high demand for reliable rail connections to Turkey as an alternative to traditional truck transport. Munich will thus become the central hub for shipments from Southern Germany, Italy (La Spezia, Genoa, Trieste) or Slovenia (Koper) to South-East Europe and the Bosporus. EGIM operates six direct trains a week from the German North Sea ports to Hungary.

Lars Hedderich, Manging Director of Eurogate Intermodal GmbH: “Our services to and from Hungary are reliable and very successful. Our customers validate this. We want to build on this success by consistently reinforcing our South-East European routes. Just a few months ago, we introduced a connection from Budapest to Nyribator in Eastern Hungary with the aim of expanding our market towards Hungary and Romania.”;
