Watch: Metrans To Build Logistics Base In West Hungary
German logistics company Metrans is building a new logistics base and container terminal in Zalaegerszeg, western Hungary, Péter Szijjártó, the minister of foreign affairs and trade, said.

The 15.7 billion forint (EUR 43.7m) investment will be supported by a 3.9 billion government grant, he said.

The base will serve as a hub for trains en route between Adriatic ports in Koper, Rijeka and Trieste and Hungarian, Slovak, Czech and Polish destinations, Szijjártó said.

The investment will create 120 jobs directly and 500 indirectly, he said. Metrans is part of Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG, the leading logistics and transport corporation in Europe, he said.
