Our transport services in the field of wood, paper, agricultural and other products are customised in line with your specific transport needs. Making the most of Slovenia’s geographical location, train schedules are designed in an efficient manner to ensure your goods reach their destination safely and in good time.   

Wood forms a significant share of our freight services both home and abroad. Supplying log wood to domestic clients has been an established business at Slovenske železnice, amongst other attested by industrial tracks linking our rail network with the majority of clients’ facilities. Internationally, log wood is carried from East Europe and the former Yugoslav countries to supply wood processing industries in Slovenia an Italy. Moreover, we are successfully entering the chain of direct international trains which haul sawn timber and chipboards from West Europe to economic hubs in the South (Greece, Turkey, Croatia etc.) and overseas via the port of Koper.   

We also operate competitive services in the transit, import, and export of paper and pulp.

Moreover, Slovenske železnice serves an important supply chain of agricultural products, in particular wheat, from East Europe and the Balkans.
