Rail Cargo Club visited us in the beginning of October. The goal of the meeting was the mutual introduction. Dr. Gyula Mihola, Secretary of Rail Cargo Club and Imre Kovács, CEO of Rail Cargo Hungaria held presentations, in which the past two years of the company was shown.
The target of Rail Cargo Club is to enlarge the share of the railways in transportation, especially in Austria, but in the whole of Europe as well. As György Mihola emphasised, Rail Cargo Club strives to offer globally to the common rail transportation clients, as a rail partner. The tariffs must allow such offers to be worked out for the clients, which are market oriented, and support their commodities to transport by rail. Secretary of RCC explained that the Club would like to contribute to the improvement of the connection between Rail Cargo Hungaria and its forwarders.
Rail Cargo Club was founded in 1992. It is an interest-association of such companies, that increase the goods transporting by rail. Five, in majority, rail freight companies established the Club, currently it has 13 members.
