Hupac is increasing the frequency of the Rotterdam-Vienna shuttle to three departures per week in both directions. The new schedule applies from next week. The direct train connection offers ongoing connections to Hungary (Budapest BILK), Turkey (Halkali), Romania (Ploiesti) and Bulgaria (Stara Zagora). The first two are offered three times a week already.

By increasing the frequency of the service, Hupac responds to the increasing demand for intermodal connections from and to Southeast Europe. The service is available for containers and swap bodies.
