We are particularly satisfied with foreign-currency incomes of 60 million Eur, which enabled us to settle inherited obligations amounting this year 43 million Eur – said Milanko Sarancic, “Serbian Railways” Director General, on the occasion of Logistic Fair in Novi Sad.
He specified that, in spite of the chronicle lack of freight cars, in this period, the railways transported 11,3 million tones of goods, and that the figure will be significantly higher if tender for the lease of 1.200 freight cars finalizes well.
Within the presentation of container transport between Bar and Belgrade, Sarancic said that with 163 containers transported last year, in 2007 the figure was increased at 387, and at the same time there is a great interest in this line shown by other countries as Hungary and Slovakia, which will be concluded with signing of the contract during December.
