EP Cargo acquires a strategic stake in LokoTrain

22.7.2015

EP Cargo a.s., part of the EPH Group, has acquired a majority stake in LokoTrain s.r.o. LokoTrain thereby joins a strong energy and industry group and wins a strategic partner for its further development.

“The portfolio of services offered by LokoTrain, in particular, the leasing of locomotives and skilled railway personnel, suitably supplements the current range of services provided by EP Cargo. This move means a mutually advantageous integration”, says Tomáš Novotný, EP Cargo Chairman.

EP Cargo provides, among other things, bulk rail transport for the EPH Group. It hauls more than 3.5 million tonnes of coal and other material by rail every year. For its customers it also carries out projects for rail transport optimisation, individualised management and operation of sidings, special transport of plant and equipment, and the optimisation of the operation of its own sidings.
