Go-ahead for InRail’s first Slovenian train
The Italian company is planning to expand its partnerships and to launch new medium and long distance services in Central and Eastern Europe
InRail officially started its freight transport activities in Slovenia.
Last March, the company had announced that it obtained the safety certificate to operate in Slovenia with its own locomotives and personnel, thus hiring the first 6 Slovenian train drivers.
InRail explained that the first train, transporting iron scraps, left from Czechoslovakia on July the 6th, at 12.30 am, travelling through the Dobova station, at the border between Croatia and Slovenia. At 5.15 am of the same day, it passed through Villa Opicina, reaching its final destination Cavatigozzi and, more precisely the Arvedi steelworks, in the early afternoon.
“The company’s agenda is already outlined. We will expand our partnerships with foreign companies for additional medium and long distance services in Europe, with particular focus on Central and Eastern Europe”, Chairman Guido Porta declared.
