Expanding intermodal transport in Serbia: A key driver for economic growth

Supported byspot_img

Serbia currently operates 11 intermodal terminals and ports dedicated to this mode of transport, two of which are state-owned. While intermodal transport is not yet widely utilized in Serbia and the Balkans, recent initiatives by the Serbian government have propelled advancements in railway reconstruction, modernization, and infrastructure enhancement. Investments in constructing intermodal terminals across Serbia are pivotal for integrating Serbian railways into the network of Europe’s most developed transportation routes.

Anita Dimoski, Acting Assistant Minister for Railway and Intermodal Transport, emphasized that the development of intermodal transport is recognized as a catalyst for Serbia’s accelerated economic growth, particularly when considering its economic, environmental, and energy efficiency advantages. In 2015, the Ministry of Construction, Transport, and Infrastructure introduced the first Decree on incentive measures aimed at enhancing combined transport, with implementation commencing in 2018. The 2024 budget law has earmarked funds totaling 100 million dinars for this purpose.

Presently, Serbia boasts 11 operational intermodal terminals and ports dedicated to intermodal transport, including two state-owned facilities. Significantly, a notable increase in new private terminals has emerged in the past three to four years, underscoring the growing demand for intermodal transport in Serbia. This was highlighted during the signing of a joint venture contract in Belgrade between “Transfera,” one of the region’s largest logistics companies, and “Rail Cargo Group,” a division of the Austrian State Railways (OBB group), marking a significant step forward in Serbia’s intermodal transport landscape.
