Srbija Kargo is especially proud of the fact that they have managed to maintain some major carriers which continue to use Serbia as a transit country and which have not transferred their transports on alternative routes in spite of all aggravating circumstances under which they operated and still operate due to major infrastructure works related to the modernization and reconstruction of the railway lines

In the next 5 years, upon the completion of major infrastructure projects, the appearance of an even larger number of private operators on the market is expected and, therefore, the goal of Srbija Kargo is to maintain the dominant and leading position in the freight railway transport.
