Eurogate Intermodal expands its network

From January 2020, the Hamburg-based operator will offer up to seven train pairs per week between German seaports and Budapest

Of these, four round trips per week will run directly between Germany and Hungary and three connections per week will be handled by Eurogate Intermodal (EGIM) via its Munich hub, providing links to further European destinations.

 

"This direct connection between Germany and Hungary offers a fast and reliable transport option with a transit-time of less than two days," said EGIM. "The additional route via the hub in South Germany offers our customers numerous other transport options. For instance, the

services via Munich will provide new connections between Budapest and the ports of Rotterdam and Antwerp.

 

"For the first time, Budapest is now also connected to Melzo/Milan, which in turn provides a link to Ligurian ports. In this way, customers will benefit from additional, more flexible connections within continental Europe." Rail Hub Milano in Melzo and La Spezia Container Terminal are both part of Eurogate group affiliate Contship Italia.

 

Lars Hedderich, Managing Director of EGIM, said: “From January, we will offer our customers additional transport corridors between northern and western ports and the growing Hungarian market. This new service offering also links Italy more closely to our existing network via the hub Munich.”

 

For this expansion, EGIM is using the Budapest-based railway company Floyd Zrt, in which it holds a majority interest of 64%. Floyd will act as the traction partner on the main route between southern Germany and Hungary. As part of this cooperation, EGIM will also be able to offer domestic transportation within Hungary via its Budapest rail hub. EGIM is represented in Hungary by ICE Transport Hungary Kft.
