New intermodal railway terminals will be opened in Hungary in the coming years to serve the industrial plants under construction, as well as the ever-increasing demand to divert road freight to rail, according to an announcement at the Eastern European Intermodal Conference in Budapest, writes profitline.hu.
In the meantime, existing terminals are being expanded or upgraded. According to the data of the Association of Hungarian Logistics Service Centers (MLSzKSz), the transshipment area may increase by a total of about half a million square meters.
The demand for rail freight transport is rising, partly due to green expectations and partly due to the shortage of truck drivers at the European level and ever-increasing road environmental protection fees.
