ÖBB Rail Cargo Group launches first connection between Xi'an and Budapest


Record time: Within 10 days the first train from Xi'an arrived at Rail Cargo Terminal - BILK via the Záhony-Eperjeske transhipment station. The container train with consumer goods covered more than 7,000 km on the route via Kazakhstan and the Ukraine. Starting point was the city of Xi'an, a mega city with 13 million inhabitants.

Great potential for Eurasian traffic
Between Rail Cargo Terminal-BILK and Xi'an, the Rail Cargo Group is the first railway undertaking to have handled a train to this route. The first test train on the alternative route via the Chinese-Kazakh border crossing Alashankou/Dostyk and the Ukrainian border via Batjevo/Eperjeske was operated by RCG. Customers benefit from the unbeatable transport time of only 10 days. RCG has thus reached a new level in Eurasian container traffic.
RCG operates several regular routes between Europe and Asia. In Hungary, goods from China are mainly transported to Hungary via the port of Piraeus or the Adriatic ports, and partly also via the continental corridors. On average, trains leave the seaports for Central Europe every other day. In addition, RCG is involved in the handling of around 1,600 trains per year and thus manages a total volume of goods of around 120 thousand TEU. This reduces the burden on the environment by 60,000 truck journeys and several hundred thousand tonnes of greenhouse gases.
