Rail Cargo Group is developing its intermodal transport network in Central and South Eastern Europe. The rail operator inaugurated three new rail connections between Turkey and the EU. In addition, the Rail Cargo Group increased the number of trains between Istanbul and Curtici.

The new connections launched by Rail Cargo Group (RCG) link Turkey with Germany and Slovakia. From July 2022, the Austrian rail operator offers direct rail connections between Turkey and key economic hubs in Western and South-Eastern Europe, i.e. from Giengen in eastern Baden-Württemberg in Germany to Cerkezköy, about 80 kilometres west of Istanbul. The train runs twice a week in each direction.

Another new addition to the Rail Cargo Group is the two rail freight links between TransFER and Slovakia. Both connections have been developed to become a transit route between Turkey and the whole of Central Europe, as well as to replace the service between Sopron, Hungary and Istanbul. Trains on the Bratislava - Istanbul route run once a week via Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria, connecting Slovakia to the European side of Turkey.

Connections with the Middle Corridor

The Bratislava - Köseköy service is also available twice a week in each direction. The terminus in Turkey is located in the Asian part of the country, more than 110 kilometres east of central Istanbul. It makes for an even easier connection to the Middle Corridor for Chinese cargo.

The third new feature of the RCG is the introduction of the third train a week on the existing Istanbul-Curtici route, connecting Turkey and Romania in just 72 hours. The decision was taken in the context of the Middle Corridor being an increasingly popular route for the transit of goods from China to the EU.

"Istanbul is an important hub on the Southern Silk Road for transport between Europe and Asia, connecting the economic centres of Western Europe with the countries of Southern and South-Eastern Europe," said Rail Cargo Group representatives.
