Mercitalia Rail acquires full control of company POL-Rail

Mercitalia Rail, which belongs to Polo Mercitalia, acquired 50% of the capital of POL-Rail, a company specialized in the rail transport of goods between Italy and Central and Eastern Europe, from the Polish Railways (PKP), thus giving it full control.

"This operation is part of the development of Polo Mercitalia, which is based both on expanding the coverage of the value chain of logistics services and on the expansion of the Polo companies in Europe", underlined Marco Gosso, Chief Executive Officer and Director General of Mercitalia Logistics.

With the acquisition of POL-Rail (and its subsidiary Rom Rail), Polo Mercitalia strengthens its presence on a traffic axis characterized by important development prospects, such as that between Italy and Eastern Europe. POL-Rail generates a business value of around 35 million euro a year.
