ICTSI announces start of first Rijeka – Austria direct cargo rail service

International Container Terminal Services Inc. (ICTSI) has announced that a new first regular train connection has been launched between the Croatian port of Rijeka and Enns in Austria.

The first train for Container Terminal Enns (CTE) in Austria departed from ICTSI's Adriatic Gate Container Terminal (AGCT) on 11 November.

The block train is operated by Maersk Line with CD Cargo Adria providing rail services, according to ICTSI's announcement.

Emmanuel Papagiannakis, AGCT chief executive officer, commented, "For the first time ever, major Austrian shippers can be directly connected by rail to AGCT Rijeka, providing a valuable alternative route with reliable transit times."

He went on to add, "Following the first ever direct trains to Czech Republic in May, the Austria connection further adds to a growing network of regular weekly block trains which already include Serbia, Hungary and Bosnia and Herzegovina and continue to illustrate the increasing significance of AGCT as a gateway for Central Europe and Southeast Europe."
