Budapest Airport Seeks China Cargo Connections
Authorities at Budapest Airport have announced plans to strengthen economic cooperation between China and Central Eastern Europe. The airport is seeking to develop its role as a transport hub for breakbulk and other cargoes arriving from China bound for Central Eastern Europe. In line with this strategy a new Cargo City will be built near Terminal 2 for dedicated cargo airline operation.
Speaking at a recent logistics forum on the topic, Rene? Droese, property director for Budapest Airport, told delegates that two major logistics bases are scheduled to be handed over to TNT and DHL Express near Terminal 1 this summer. “Budapest is simply ideal for the distribution of Chinese cargo in Central and Eastern Europe…
We initiated this logistics forum to introduce the opportunities in Hungary and especially at Budapest Airport to large, market leading Chinese logistics companies, like Alibaba,” Droese said.
