We are the youngest company in the Group, whose beginning took place in Ukraine. OWLN was founded in 1998. As a result, the Group has retained the unique competences of this institution – providing logistics services to mining and metallurgical enterprises of the CIS countries.

 

Implementing the OWLN mission in the field of developing pan-European rail connections, the Group decided to establish a company in Poland.

In addition to the carrier’s license, safety certificates A and B, we have also received the ECM certificate, so we can actively participate in the creation and execution of activities related to the maintenance of rolling stock, both our own and our customers.
