Coal transportation is one of our company’s strategic specializations, making PKP CARGO an important element of Poland’s energy security system,” says Władysław Szczepkowski, Interim Chairman of the Board of PKP CARGO S.A.

At present, TAURON Wydobycie has a much higher demand for coal products than in previous years. It comes from large business entities and individual customers.

According to the Polish Central Statistical Office (GUS), PKP CARGO transported almost 93 million tonnes of cargo in 2021 and recorded a high increase in shipments (by 9.8%) compared to 2020.
