ČD Cargo Adria, a subsidiary of Czech freight operator ČD Cargo, has been licensed as an operator in Croatia from April 4.

The subsidiary, established in May 2021, expects to operate its first trains under its own license at the end of April, after launching preparations in October 2021.

ČD Cargo plans to operate intermodal, cereal and mixed freight services in Croatia, with the new licence giving it essential access to Croatian ports. The operator also has a fleet of modernised electric locomotives that are authorised to operate in Croatia.
