Based on the conclusion of the Board of Directors, Eglė Šimė will take up the position of temporary director of LTG Cargo on 4 January 2022. It was announced on its website by the Lithuanian state railway freight company.

Eglė Šimė joined the LTG Cargo management team in August 2019 and has previously led the company's operations management division. The decision of the company's management got based on E. Šimė's experience with the successful management of the company's largest division and the ability to focus the team on the implementation of extensive changes in the company.

 "In the near future, we will focus on two main directions in the firm: we will continue to work on the implementation of diversification of activities envisaged in the current strategy, and we will complete the digital transformation of the company's extensive activities," says E. Šimė

According to the new director of LTG Cargo, opportunities for diversification are opening due to the intersection of logistics routes in Lithuania between Asian, Western European, and Scandinavian countries, so activities in Poland and Ukraine will get strengthened and opportunities to initiate new international logistics routes are sought. To this end, intermodal freight services to Western Europe will get further expanded. The new Kaunas intermodal terminal, where two different railway standards cross, provides an opportunity for continuous freight transport in these directions.

At the same time, attention will get focused on the final stages of the company's modification. This year, it gets scheduled to complete required assignments for digitizing the company's processes, which will improve the efficiency of procedures and the competitiveness of the services provided.

The adjustments allow the final improvement of the modern business model that helps the integration of various resource planning methods and further mechanization of operations.
