Freight Transport

ČD’s activities in rail freight transport are operated by its subsidiary ČD Cargo, a.s. on a network of more than 9,500 km of railway lines in the Czech Republic.

ČD Cargo provides shipments of industrial and agricultural commodities, raw materials, automobiles, fuels and propellants, goods, containers and oversized freight. ČD Cargo also leases and rents out freight wagons, and provides siding and other shipping services.

The future

ČD Cargo’s rail freight transport service ranks fifth in the EU by performance and the company intends to maintain this position despite increasing competition on the liberalised freight transport market. Its priorities thus include essential investments in infrastructure supporting the integration of industrial zones into the railway network, as well as building combined transport terminals and logistics centres. During the next two years, ČD Cargo will put more than 1,450 new or modernised rail freight wagons into operation.

Certificates and awards

One of the company’s priorities is to maintain and continually improve its ISO and OHSAS management systems (quality management, environmental management and occupational health and safety management systems). ČD Cargo holds the ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001:2004 and OHSAS 18001:2007 certificates, which were issued by the company SGS CZ, s.r.o. Recertification and a control oversight audit of these systems took place in May 2013.

ČD Cargo presently holds an AEO “Authorized Economic Operator” certification, issued on 24 September 2009.
