The largest railway freight carrier in Poland has submitted a competitive bid in a tender announced by Veolia for transporting coal to companies of the Group throughout the country. The volume of the transported raw material will total over 5 million tonnes in the period 2019-2021.
As a result of the same tender PKP CARGO S.A. will also carry out additional transports of 950 thousand tonnes of coal for the Veolia Polska Group in 2018 as part of a binding agreement that will be appended.
- We consistently implement our strategy of meeting the Client's expectations. We are satisfied that once again our bid for coal transport for Veolia Group in Poland turned out to be competitive. This is proof that our experience and scale of operations on the market are at the base of building partner and mutually beneficial relationships with our key Clients - said Czesław Warsewicz, President of the Management Board of PKP CARGO SA.
- Ensuring stable and reliable deliveries at the best price for our electrical power and heating plants, and heating-only plants, provided by PKP Cargo for the next 3 years, is crucial for us. Veolia attaches great importance to providing its customers in the many cities where it conducts its business with an uninterrupted heat supply and high-quality services. I am pleased to say that the hard coal deliveries (annually about 2 million tons) to our electrical power and heating plants, and heating-only plants came in the last years in the vast majority from Polish mines, based on long-term agreements. We always strive to be a reliable partner that supports the local economy - said Frédéric Faroche, President of the Board and General Director of the Veolia Group in Poland.
