Intermodal provider Metrans has launched a weekly train connection between its terminal in Dunajská Streda on the border with Hungary and the port in the northern Italian town of Trieste, the TASR newswire reported.

Only recently the port of Trieste increased the frequency of a similar connection with Budapest to five trains per week.    

The importance of the rail connection for the port of Trieste has been increasing. Thanks especially to investments in the rail service, its activities are increasing and out of all Italian ports its inter-connection with abroad has been growing the most.  

Metrans’s terminal in Dunajská Streda is the biggest intermodal terminal in Slovakia. It has a direct rail connection with ports in Hamburg, Bremerhavene, Koper and Rijeka. The rail hub terminal was constructed as a green field terminal in Dunajská Streda to meet growing demand in the region. It started operation in 2007. The company continues to expand its services into central and eastern Europe.
