Railway properties firm Gaiaose is planning to concede three more freight centers via tender procedures in the next 12 months, besides the Thriasio center, which will see its tender completed by the end of June if the firm’s efforts are successful.

Gaiaose will then announce a tender for the freight center at the Gonou military camp in Thessaloniki, likely in the last quarter of the year, while in the first half of 2017 the Alexandroupoli center will follow. There are also plans for the development of a freight center at Larissa in central Greece.

The Gaiaose privatization program is not related to that of state sell-off fund TAIPED, but is directly related to the broader development of Greek ports and the accompanying growth of the transit sector. The railway property firm has already started the process to bring the above real estate to maturity, to ensure the creation of attractive assets.
