Metrans is building an intermodal container terminal in Zalaegerszeg - VIDEO REPORT

MetransMETRANS Group is establishing a new rail/road logistics terminal in Zalaegerszeg. The investment of over EUR 44.3 million will grant the Hungarian city a key role in making the Adriatic Corridor become a priority trade route. The container terminal, which is planned to be handed over to use in a number of stages as of 2023, will be a significant logistics centre in Hungary and the region, even creating 120 new jobs.

METRANS Group, which is engaged in intermodal freight transport as a subsidiary to the Germany-based HHLA (Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG) concern, has been serving the transportation needs of various European countries with its railroad system and container terminal network. The company, with a staff of over 2,000 employees, offers efficient and environment-friendly logistics solutions to its customers in Central and Eastern Europe, as part of the container freight transportation service provided in Europe's leading ports.

It was in 2017 that METRANS opened its first fully-owned Hungarian terminal in Budapest. Its international network, however, currently consists of 17 rail terminals. Zalaegerszeg has been selected for the site of the company's second terminal in the country, which is expected to grow into a significant hub in the future, on the transportation line connecting the ports of Southern and South Eastern Europe, namely Trieste, Koper and Rijeka with the European markets. The building of the terminal will support Hungary in becoming one of the most competent logistics centres in Europe.
