InRail, an Italian rail freight company, launched a new service connecting the port of Genoa to Tiszaujvaros, in northeast Hungary. The service will have a frequency of one roundtrip per week, with transit time revolving around two days, as a spokesperson from InRail told

The service will take care of the transportation of carbon black, widely used to strengthen rubber and plastic materials, especially in the tire industry. The carbon black will be transported in dedicated container wagons. Westbound trains are coming back empty.

A service in collaboration with Ferest Rail

As the spokesperson pointed out, the train will leave the port of Genoa from the Silomar terminal and cross through to Slovenia via Villa Opicina, near Trieste. From there, the train will reach the border with Hungaria in Hodos, near the Orsegi Nemzeti Park to finally arrive in Tiszaujvaros.

Thanks to its Slovenian branch, InRail is able to take care of the service on both Italian and Slovenian grounds. “Currently InRail is the only private Italia rail company that can autonomously operate in Slovenia as well, with its own Safety Certificate and specific organisation,” claimed the spokesperson. Once it reaches Hungary, the train will be operated by Ferest Rail, a rail freight company based in Udine, in northeastern Italy.
