The first transport was carried out earlier this year, using its Romanian and Hungarian resources and Slovenian manpower. “The expansion in Slovenia is part of the strategy to streamline and interconnect the services we provide to our international customers,” says Gruia Stoica, President of GRAMPET Group – Grup Feroviar Roman.

“Our operators are present with transport licenses/safety certificates in eight European networks and thus achieve a complete circuit of freight exchanges, which results in stronger regional interoperability given better connectivity. The first weeks of operations in Slovenia have generated very good results, in line with the projections of our entire international freight activity of the GRAMPET Group. All these operations are profitable and increase their contribution to the group’s consolidated results every year,“ explaining Gruia Stoica.

“For us, this success is clear proof that Romanian entrepreneurs can compete on an equal footing alongside leaders of their specific industries, on international markets. We are optimistic that there are important opportunities for regional consolidation and growth in the coming years, on the background of major infrastructure projects announced at the European level and the global post-pandemic recalibration of supply chains. Our financial objective is to increase the international division’s contribution to 30% of the annual turnover over the next five years, by consolidating our existing activities and also by entering new markets.”

The division, which includes operators GRUP FEROVIAR ROMAN, TRAIN HUNGARY Budapest, TRAIN HUNGARY – Zagreb Branch, BULGARIAN RAILWAY COMPANY, EURORAIL LOGISTCS doo Serbia, GRAMPET CARGO AUSTRIA and TRAIN HUNGARY – Ljublijana Branch, provides logistics solutions through a fleet of 20,000 wagons and 400 locomotives.

GRAMPET Group is the largest railway group and private logistics operator in Romania and Central and South-Eastern Europe, employing some 7,000 people. Founded more than 20 years ago, it became the first multinational with Romanian capital, expanding in turn in Bulgaria (2004), Hungary (2005), the Moldova Republic and Germany (2010), Austria and Slovakia (2012), Croatia (2016), Serbia (2018), and Greece (2019).
