Rail freight

Rail – for the long distances

“Speaking of the East-West axis, you are automatically talking rail freight. For import, export, transit: we offer the complete spectrum of rail freight services.” 

The longer the distances, the bigger the demand for rail freight. Rail freight combines high capacities, safe transportation, and low energy costs. Railways not only transport bulk goods over long distances, they connect sea ports to their hinterland and economic zones across political and geographical borders.
