LTG Cargo, known for continuously expanding its range of services and the volume of its international shipments to the West, is gearing up to offer freight services across all the Baltic States.

The company has successfully completed its first continuous pilot run from Lithuania, through Latvia, to Estonia's Valga station. This freight transport is organized within LTG Cargo's capacity, ensuring that all logistics solutions along the route are managed independently.

"With a single Siemens locomotive for the test run through all three Baltic countries, customers' freight can be transported more competitively on the international route without having to spend time re-coupling wagon sets at each border.

Today, we already possess the carrier safety certificates required for international transports in the Baltic States from the European Union Railway Agency and the national safety authorities of the Baltic States. We have already carried out the first pilot run from Lithuania to the first border station in Estonia," says Eglė Šimė, LTG Cargo CEO.

She stated that the company plans to start operating transports across all three Baltic countries soon. By expanding its operations in the Baltic countries, the company aims to provide its customers with competitive green logistics services both in Lithuania and in the other Baltic countries. The new route is also an important step in the company's preparations for future freight services on the northern corridor - Rail Baltica.

The company has been preparing for a year for freight transport in the Baltics. The certification process in foreign countries is notable for its complexity and difficulty. It involved the preparation of 400 key documents and another 300 annexes to prove that LTG Cargo is ready to use the infrastructure of the other Baltic countries and to meet all safety and legal obligations.
