OUR VALUES

#RELIABILITY

The quality of the fleet goes hand in hand with the quality of maintenance. We rely on the fact that we order the revisions of our wagons in renowned workshops that take care of our wagons on a long-term and regular basis. Such cooperation helps us to reduce the risk of errors or incorrect procedures, and at the same time allows us to continuously adapt maintenance procedures to detected damage or increased wear of specific parts. As part of improving quality in all areas of our activities, we are developing a quality management system together with our partners.

#DIGITALIZATION

All Cargo Wagons are equipped with units for tracking the position and movement of the wagon. From your Internet browser, you can find out the exact current location of each rented wagon, you can track the movement and mileage of the wagon. The system can warn customers about dangerous handling of the wagon, as well as the entry of the wagon into a defined area, such as e.g. sidings, maintenance workshops or landfills. Since the system is linked to the Cargo Wagon maintenance database, it allows customers to view current technical data on each wagon the customer has on lease. You can familiarize yourself with all the functions of the system for tracking the position of wagons in our video.
