New connection between Turkey, Hungary and the Czech Republic

The ÖBB Rail Cargo Group is expanding its intermodal network by combining its new TransFER Budapest–Brno with increasing the frequency of its existing Budapest–Köseköy TransFER service.

Combining the new TransFER between Budapest and Brno with increased frequency of services between Budapest and Köseköy means it will be possible to transport goods directly from the Asian side of Turkey to Hungary and on from there to the Czech Republic twice a week. Customers benefit from a new high-performance, stable connection between the Czech Republic and Turkey. DSV in particular will be availing of this for its customers. Both services are part and parcel of our TransNET, which facilitate onward distribution to all RCG destinations.

New TransFER Budapest–Brno

The RCG’s new Budapest–Brno TransFER connection will be launched on 5th May. It will provide efficient and eco-friendly transport services between Hungary and the Czech Republic for maritime and continental supply chains. This connection between the Container Terminal Brno and the Terminal BILK in Budapest provides a fast transit time of 12 hours and two round trips a week. Our TransNET provides a link to Koper as part of the service running between these two destinations, with a fast, reliable and affordable connection between this Adriatic port and the Czech Republic as well as neighbouring Slovakia.

More round trips for the TransFER Budapest–Köseköy

The route on into Turkey will be bolstered with the launch of this new service. The RCG is going to increase the frequency of its TransFER Budapest–Köseköy to two round trips a week. The possibility of connecting the new TransFER Budapest–Brno with Anatolia and Central Asia / China provides opens up the possibility of linking up with economic hubs across all of Western Europe and connecting all of Eurasia to the RCG network.

Strengthening the new partnership with the TCDD (Turkish State Railways) operator Pasifik Eurasia (Pacific Eurasia) at the Köseköy terminal provides a vital link for transport to and from Turkey and on into the CIS countries and China.
