After the second edition of the forum entitled Automotive Leaders Summit Europe, held on March 13th and 14th in Vienna, it became clear that the Austrian transport company LKW Walter plans on buildingnew intermodal terminals in Bulgaria. “We are currently working on such a project in Vidin, and in case it is successfully implemented, we plan to build similar terminals in Sofia and Svilengrad”, BalkanEngineer.com learned from LKW Walter.
The event was attended by managers and representatives of some of the leading companies in the automotive sector.
It became clear from the meeting that there are many concrete opportunities for the construction of intermodal terminals in the economic and industrial zones of Sofia. Some of the world leaders in auto industry are already operating in the state-owned industrial areas. Many logistics projects are also being realized, which creates favorable conditions for the future need of intermodal terminals.
A working group on the part of LKW Walter is to be formed to examine the conditions for the construction of the facilities. The company has also stressed out that the Free Zone Svilengrad provides excellent logistical capabilities, mainly due to its proximity to the borders with Greece and Turkey.
