For a railway freight solution that suits your needs…

With our railway freight solution, we safely transport both your raw materials and finished products by conventional or combined transportation.

Conventional transportation

In conventional transportation, we offer a door-to-door solution by train, with or without a transfer. Conventional transport is ideal for transporting your raw material supplies and vehicles leaving the factory. We provide the opportunity to transport your large volumes of cargo at low costs by conventional transportation, during which the products are loaded directly onto the wagon.

Combined freight

In combined freight, which provides convenience and advantage in the transportation of especially heavy loads, we combine different modes of transportation specifically for our customers' industries and products in line with their requirements: Ocean + Railway, Road + Railway. Thanks to our infrastructure that facilitates transfer between modes of transportation and our transportation vehicles and equipment, we deliver our customers' products to their exact destination on time. In combined freight, it provides logistics cost advantage since no tolls and additional costs are paid in road freight.
