The Freeport operated by our company, the Freeport of Budapest Logistics Ltd., encompasses 153 hectares at marker 1639.8 on the Danube section of the Danube-Main-Rhine waterway. This section crosses the continent from northwest to southeast and has a predominant role in Europe’s inland waterway transport.
The two commercial basins providing most of the port’s water-side traffic – commercial basins no. 1 and 2. – are accessible from the main branch of the Danube, through a common bay entrance at marker 1639.8. To the south of the common entrance of the commercial basins is the Petrol Basin (Petróleum medence) providing the circulation of oil and oil-derivatives, which has a separate entrance at marker 1639.4. The water-side accessibility of the Port is determined by the navigability of the Danube section in Budapest. In case of low water levels, the navigability depends on the depths of the Dömös and Budafok shallow groups near markers 1699 and 1636, respectively. A total of 18 established ship berths are available in the three operating basins.
Fully comprehensive railway-, shipping- and other port services are available in our port for our clients, and an RO-RO terminal and a container terminal operates in our area as well. One of the main activities of Freeport of Budapest Logistics Ltd. is the letting of property, in the framework of which our company manages covered warehouses of more than 157 000 m2, office spaces of 10 000 m2 and free space of 34 ha. You can find more information about the rentable immovable estates under the Exploitationof Immovable Estates / Letting of Property menus.
The location and layout properties of the Freeport –possessing an “Industrial Park" certification since 2009 – have made it possible to build an internationally significant port and logistics centre. The container terminal operating in the Freeport – which is the only container terminal with water-side loading capacities in the country – provides an opportunity to join the prospering container traffic of the Danube. The Port has a humongous development area of 34 hectares in the immediate vicinity of the city centre, in one of the most promising areas of Budapest expected to undergo significant developments; this development area offers further development opportunities in addition to the port-logistics functions.
Our Port was certified as a National Public Port in 2005, our Port is a member of the Hungarian Federation of Danube Ports and – as a founding member of the Associate of Hungarian Logistics Service Centers – was granted the right to use the title “Intermodal Logistics Service Center" in 2007.
