The intermodal terminal (dry port) based in Iliyantsi, Sofia will be linked by train directly to the Port of Thessaloniki, providing competitive transit times and costs.
The new dry port aims to become an important trade hub and a modern development center, which will be linked by train with a range of dry ports in South-Eastern, Eastern and Central Europe.
The Executive Chairman of the BoD of ThPA S.A.

It is the first dry port from a series of similar ones that we will create in the wider Balkan region”.
