ViaEurope chooses Budapest for its third e-HUB
Amsterdam, The Netherlands, September 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Just two years after successfully venturing out of the Netherlands, with the opening of a second e-HUB in LiÃ¨ge (LGG), Belgium, ViaEurope, a leader in e-commerce Logistics in Europe is delighted to announce the company’s continued European expansion with the opening of a third e-HUB at Budapest Airport (BUD), Hungary. BJ Streefland, CEO and Founder of ViaEurope explains: âThe success encountered at LGG in just two years of operation validates our concept of connected e-HUBs, and confirms that it can be duplicated wherever we want. As we continue to develop our presence across the continent, Budapest Airport’s significant investments and commitments to e-commerce place us at the center of a new regional freight hub in Central and Eastern Europe (EEC).. ”
The unique and strategic geographical location of Budapest airport in the EEC is an undeniable advantage for ViaEurope, as its catchment area includes the entire EEC region including Hungary, Poland, Ukraine, Romania, Bulgaria, Slovakia , Croatia, Austria, Slovenia, Czech Republic, parts of Germany etc.
In addition, the cooperation agreement recently signed between China and Hungary, called âAir Silk Roadâ, led to the creation of a dedicated express logistics center: BUD Cargo City. Opened in January 2020, this new freight handling center allows ViaEurope to operate its own bonded warehouse and digitize customs clearance 24/7. Located directly at the airport, ViaEurope e-HUB has easy city side access, direct connection to Hungary’s motorway network and easy access to neighboring countries. BUD Cargo City’s new facilities delivered in 2020 and BUD’s current freight flight network provide an excellent environment for ViaEurope to start its BUD hub project.
“We are delighted to be working with BUD Airport which is committed to becoming an e-commerce hub for the EEC and providing companies like ViaEurope with innovative air cargo logistics solutions,Â», Explains BJ Streefland.
RenÃ© Droese, Director of Development at Budapest Airport confirms: âE-commerce freight has a bright future at Budapest Airport. We intend to further develop our freight capabilities, support the implementation of new freight technologies and establish strong cooperation with the e-commerce community. BUD is therefore pleased to welcome ViaEurope’s third European e-HUB. Their approach to e-commerce logistics is powered by technology and data analytics, something we also strongly believe in.. “
ViaEurope BUD e-HUB will be operational just in time for the next high season in November. As in AMS and LGG, the company will offer a broad portfolio of solutions there, including airport management, customs clearance, last mile delivery and online transport services.
