As part of its long-standing cooperation with ArcelorMittal Poland, the ÖBB Rail Cargo Group is scaling up its transport services for the world’s largest steel corporation and is now transporting steel coils to Bratislava and Senica in Slovakia.

The ÖBB Rail Cargo Group has enjoyed many years of successful collaboration with international steel corporation ArcelorMittal Poland. Rail Cargo Carrier - Slovakia, Rail Cargo Carrier - Czech Republic and Rail Cargo Hungaria regularly transport coils from ArcelorMittal’s steel works in Krakow to Gönyű Kikötő in Hungary.

This successful collaboration is now being extended further: ÖBB RCG has succeeded in securing more steel transport services bound for Senica and Bratislava in Slovakia.

Founded on successful collaboration

The agility and flexibility of the Rail Cargo Carrier subsidiaries in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, coupled with international sales activities at Rail Cargo Logistics - Austria, Rail Cargo Logistics - Poland and Rail Cargo Hungaria, have made it possible to expand on the range of transport services and transport freight efficiently to destinations in Slovakia.

With its sustainable rail transport services, the ÖBB Rail Cargo Group is helping this globally successful company on the way to reducing its carbon footprint even further, not only through its sustainable steel production, but also its deliveries.
