Lithuanian carrier expands to Poland
Lithuania’s rail freight operator LTG Cargo has established its own subsidiary in Poland. LTG Cargo Polska will strengthen logistics supply chains and improve the mobility of large freight shipments between Lithuania and Poland, LTG said.
The expansion to Poland will also help diversify LTG Cargo's operational risks, boost freight flows and achieve its strategic target of 65 million to 70 million t of freight per year. In the near future, LTG Cargo Polska will seek strategic partnerships with carriers in the Polish market, the carrier PKP Cargo for example, with whom LTG Cargo recently signed a letter of intent.
End of June, Poland's office of rail transport (UTK) granted a safety certificate to the Lithuanian operator, which plans to initially launch a regular freight service between Mockava in Lithuania and Bialystok in Poland. (ben)
