At the time of its establishment, 24 people in the Lenin Boulevard property, including 3 as technical maintenance and 4 as administrators, were working under the leadership of Nándor Och, and the company’s 16 vehicles were driven by 16 drivers. In Csongrád county, a headquarters was established in Hódmezővásárhely and Makón, while in the other settlements of the county the post office organized the freight transport. In connection with the reorganization of the National Freight Center, established in 1950, all three main engineers merged into the newly established Szeged Freight Company. Its director was Zoltán Scheiber, the branch in Hódmezővásárhely was managed by János Halmi, while his makó was managed by Lajos Deme. In addition to the trucks of the three cities, his responsibilities also extended to the postal representation wagons of Szentes, Csongrád and Kistelek. At that time, the company had the following vehicles: 39 Opel Blitz trucks, most of which (24) were in Szeged, 5 in Târgu Mureş, 4 in Makón and 2-2-2 in the three post offices.
