We are aware of the impact of the road transportation on the environment and orient our efforts to create and implement solutions to minimize it. As a result, in 2013 we decided to develop and integrate intermodal solutions in our services range and we set as goal to shift 20% of our road traffic to rail within the next 5 years.
The BtoUK project aimed to create viable road-rail connections between Bulgaria, Romania and Western Europe. First deliveries were done to UK. The project was conducted with INEA support under a Marco Polo program.
Later, the coverage of our intermodal service was extended by including traffic to Belgium, Netherlands, Ruhr area of Germany and large parts of Northern France.
