Rail Cargo Operator and Rail Cargo Hungaria will operate regular express freight trains running from Budapest to China, carrying Hungarian export products, Rail Cargo Hungaria said on Thursday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
The carried cargo will consist mainly of electrical equipment manufactured in Hungary, machine and car parts, household and IT equipment, including production raw materials, as well as sports equipment and cutting tools.
The regular trains, with a travel time of 15-20 days, are launching following three successful test runs.
Rail Cargo Group has been receiving trains from China at Záhony, on the Ukrainian border, carrying imported goods, on a weekly basis since August 2020. The rail freight company expects volume passing through the Zahony checkpoint to exceed 10,000 twenty-foot equivalent units by the end of 2021.
