New freight operator on the Belgian rail network - 05/01/2017

Infrabel are starting the new year with a new client. From today, the Polish rail company, HSL Polska, will be operating in our country between Aix-la-Chapelle and Zeebruges Ramskapelle.

HSL Polska

HSL Polska will transport various goods through Belgium. In the long term, the aim is also to create other links such as, for example, a connection to the Port of Antwerp. This operator is connected to HSL Logistik, a German rail company that already has a presence in the Netherlands, Austria and the Czech Republic.

This new client is the twelfth freight operator to follow Infrabel's tracks. Before being able to operate on the Belgian rail network, HSL Polska had to obtain the required safety certificates and sign a usage agreement with Infrabel.
