PKP CARGO SERVICE provides comprehensive services in the area of railway siding operation, ensuring safety and top service quality.

Sidings – scope of service

Siding operation is a complex service. We provide motive power for wagon switchover, delegate employees for shunting and operation of wagon movement equipment, and dispatch trains from the sidings. We also take care of forwarding and trade documentation. We provide diagnostics and maintenance of railway siding infrastructure.

We work for the biggest players

We provide comprehensive railway siding support at 40 locations in six Polish voivodeships. Our customers include major players in the mining, power and heat generation sectors. Our presence is the strongest in the Silesia, where we operate a dozen or so sidings owned by coal mines and power plants. We also work in the Małopolskie, Świętokrzyskie, Mazowieckie, Wielkopolskie, Kujawsko-Pomorskie and Zachodniopomorskie regions.

"Siding operation is a specialised business with a strong focus on customer relations. We support global corporations and Polish industry leaders. Our unique know-how, access to a huge rolling stock park and cooperation under PKP CARGO Group represent our key competitive advantages."
