RCG now also in Serbia with its own traction

ÖBB Rail Cargo Group (RCG) has founded a new subsidiary in Serbia, bringing the number of countries in which it operates with its own staff and locomotives to 13. That means faster TransFER connections to Greece and Turkey for our customers.

The RCG has founded a new subsidiary in Belgrade. Rail Cargo Carrier - Southeast d.o.o. has made Serbia the 13th country in Europe in which RCG offers sustainable rail freight transport with its own staff and locomotives. The new railway undertaking will mainly provide transit services between Turkey and Central and South-Eastern Europe, thus strengthening RCG's market-leading position in Turkey.
As the sustainable logistics backbone of the European economy, the RCG is now offering Serbian industrial companies an efficient and sustainable connection to European rail freight transport. Own traction in 13 countries also provides a high degree of flexibility – and this flexibility makes it possible to carry out transports even faster, more efficiently, and in a more customer-oriented manner from a single source.

Huge potential for the economy and climate protection

The connection with Turkey has huge potential for sustainable, climate-friendly rail freight transport. As it stands, Turkish foreign trade is still heavily dependent on truck transports. Rail currently accounts for only about one percent of Turkey's exports. By establishing the company in Serbia, RCG is ensuring that rail freight transport in South-Eastern Europe expands and becomes more attractive.
