Rail Cargo Group to provide better transport options for Western Europe-Turkey route
The Rail Cargo Group (RCG) is planning to expand its railway logistics options on routes from Western Europe to the East, in Turkey.
A subsidiary of ÖBB, the Rail Cargo Group has been an active player on the Turkish transport market for the last few years. As a result, the RGC wants to expand the transport network options inside the country, starting with 2017, with a new railway logistics offer. The extension ensures a transport route from Poland, through Budapest (Hungary) and all the way to Istanbul (Turkey). Thanks to the advancements of the RCG Terminal BILK, in Budapest, new routes can be expanded towards Germany and Romania, for instance.
This future project will also lead to better cooperation between the Rail Cargo Group and the Turkish State Railways (TCDD – Türkiye Cumhuriyeti Devlet Demiryolları). In turn, this will lead to better projects between the two, regarding the country’s rail freight industry. Currently, rail transport of goods has a rail share of 0.85%, in Turkey, but it’s expected to witness a significant growth in the following years. The representatives involved will be talking about these future projects and ways to make them viable.
