PKP Cargo gains access from the Baltic to the Adriatic

SLOVENIA: The Advanced World Transport subsidiary of privatised Polish freight operator PKP Cargo purchased an 80% stake in Slovenian freight company Primol-Rail on December 6.

Primol-Rail was founded in 2016, although it has not yet begun train operations. ‘This purchase creates the opportunity to enter the Slovenian market’, said PKP Cargo CEO Czesław Warsewicz. ‘Now we can operate from the Adriatic Sea to the Baltic Sea.’

State incumbent SŽ Tovorni Promet, Adria Transport and Rail Cargo currently operate freight trains in Slovenia, while port operator Luka Koper and Primol-Rail have licences but are not yet operating trains.

The Ten Rail subsidiary of Austrian company Zeller Transporttechnik is also seeking to enter the Slovenian market.

The New Silk Road

In January 2017 a freight train arrived in Barking in east London, carrying 44 containers of clothes and suitcases to be sold on the high street. This would have been an otherwise unremarkable event but for the fact that it had set off 18 days previously from the heavily polluted city of Yiwu in central Zhejiang province in China, weaved its way through Kazakhstan, Russia, Belarus, Poland, Germany, Belgium and France, before popping out of the Channel Tunnel into England’s green and pleasant land. With much fanfare, London became the 15th European city to be connected to China’s One Belt, One Road programme, the 21st-century incarnation of the old Silk Roads – the trading routes that connected a string of peoples and places from across the Eurasian landmass to western Europe, and left an indelible mark on the shape of modern civilisation.
