Abstract: The export of grain plays an important role in the foreign trade of the country, so the change of agricultural export, with either its positive or negative excursions, has significant effects on the foreign trade capacity of the whole national economy and also the development of its balance. Due to the natural givens of Hungary it is possible to produce a volume that far exceeds national needs. For Hungary it is a key issue to develop logistics service centres, which will basically change the division of labour in the field of transporting goods. Today agricultural logistics belongs to the acknowledged and important branches of economy. Its main point is that it covers the tasks of delivery, storage, quality assurance of different grains and other products through intervention warehouses to transportation abroad. It is very favourable for the national logistics industry that there are four pan-European corridors going across the country and that companies developed at regional level during the past few years. At the same time the bad conditions of infrastructure, the capital shortage of small- and middle-sized companies and also the subsidization system, which is not really effective and quite unpredictable, forestall the development.
