If everything goes according to plan, in near future the country will establish regular communication with China directly. This was expressed in the New Silk Road: Towards Central and Western Europe webinar. The organizers were DBO Bahnoperator and METRANS.
According to METRANS director Martin Koubek, it is now decided whether the trains will run weekly or every two weeks. In addition, the dispatch points are discussed: Wuhan or Xian.
Previously, China’s trains stopped at Hungary, in Budapest, where goods were loaded onto other trains and shipped to Serbia. The new route will significantly reduce the cost of delivery and the arrival time of goods.
