On 02.08.2013, the President of The Railway Transport Office, Mr. Krzysztof Dyl, certified Rail Polska as an “entity in charge of maintenance” of railway vehicles (ECM) in the scope of freight wagon maintenance. In the case of Rail Polska, the certificate covers also maintenance of tank wagons used in movements of hazardous materials.
The obligation of ECM certification was introduced into Polish regulations in 2011 based on the EU safety directive of 2008. Certificates, valid for three years, are granted to suitably qualified railway organizations.
The received ECM certificate together with the Railway Safety Operator’s certificate, confirm that Rail Polska applies the highest technical and organizational standards. Similarly, the document certifies that Rail Polska is a safe and a reliable commercial partner on the national and moreover on the European railway network.
On 6-8 March 2012, Transport Week 2012 took place in the Polish Baltic Philharmonic Hall in Gdańsk. A stand prepared by our colleagues from Baltic Rail AS (a Rail World group company) provided information about Rail Polska and its offer for the logistic industry professionals who attended.
The main subject of the Transport Week 2012 was container transport - our company is proud to take an active part in the realization of a new undertaking, namely the Adriatic-Baltic corridor. Rail Polska and other non-Polish operators have started regular container movements between Koper (Slovenia) - Gdynia ports (Rail Polska services the Petrowice – Katowice - Gdynia sections).
