Adriatic Gate CEO Emmanuel Papagiannakis underscored that the Czech market is one of the most important European markets.

“Currently, we have several regular weekly block trains from Rijeka to Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Hungary, from where we are also connected to Slovakia,” he said, stressing that the company appreciates Maersk’s initiative to launch the new service, which would also provide a direct rail service connecting Rijeka and the Czech Republic.

Papagiannakis underscored that the new service confirms the increasing importance of the Adriatic Gate company for the markets of Central and Southeastern Europe.

Maersk’s rail service was launched in May this year and runs up to twice a week. The rail service is operated by ČD Cargo Adria, a subsidiary of the Czech cargo operator ČD Cargo, the largest provider of rail transport services in the Czech Republic and one of the leading rail operators on the trans-European network corridor including Slovakia, Germany, Austria, Poland, and now Croatia.

Adriatic Gate Container Terminal – AGCT is a public-private partnership in which International Container Terminal Services Inc. (ICTSI) holds a 51% interest while the Port of Rijeka holds a stake of 49%.
