Rail Company ZSR To Create Transhipment Centre in Zilina
Zilina will become more attractive for potential investors following a EUR 38 million investment into a transhipment hub planned by Slovak rail company ZSR.
The new transhipment centre will be located near the Kia Motors car plant and should provide around 50 local jobs. The railway company believes that the investment will lead to increased industrial activity thanks to the logistic options that it will open up.
The news was welcomed particularly by freight forwarders, who say a centre of this kind has long been missing from the region, which is at a key junction with links to the Czech Republic and Poland.
