BUDAPEST, May 2 (Xinhua) -- Zahony, a town that locates within 100 km to five borders with five countries in northeastern Hungary, has become an important hub for China-Europe freight trains to enter the EU.

Norbert Csomos, managing director of MAV-REC Railway Engineering Cooperation Ltd., has witnessed the development in Zahony, where the first container train from China arrived in July 2017.

MAV-REC, Zahony Port Ltd. and Central Europe Trade and Logistics Cooperation Zone (CECZ) have formed a consortium to jointly promote the construction of the Central Europe Logistics Industrial Zone (CELIZ) project in Zahony.

The project aims at building a modern multimodal logistics center in Europe. The Zahony transshipment station will also be renovated and expanded.
