There is a project for one (for PKP Intercity, since the one above is for the Mazovian Railways), but I don't know what stage it is in.

Poland’s state railway redraws Iron Curtain

From Szczecin in the north to Trieste in the south was how Winston Churchill mapped out the “Iron Curtain” falling across Europe, to separate east and west after the second world war.

Now, PKP, Poland’s state railway, is redrawing that line in steel tracks — to connect the Baltic to the Adriatic, and expand its business in international markets.

Its publicly listed freight unit, PKP Cargo, has stitched together a route through central and eastern Europe by means of acquisition, joint ventures and access agreements, in a conscious effort to leverage its dominance of the Polish market and expand across the region.

Earlier this year, it paid more than €100m for an 80 per cent stake in AWT, the Czech Republic’s largest private rail freight company, and it has just signed a co-operation agreement with HZ Cargo, a Croatian railroad and port operator, for access to ports in Rijeka and Ploce as well as its rail and cargo storage assets.

Jakub Karnowski, chief executive of PKP, declines to comment on whether this agreement is a precursor to a purchase of the Croatian company. But he does say: “Our goal is to establish a corridor . . . between the Baltic and the Adriatic.”

And, from there, the company — which is Europe’s second-largest rail freight operator, is looking east: it plans to expand a nascent agreement struck with Chinese rail operators to run twice-weekly services connecting central and eastern Europe.

“This is the only way for PKP Cargo to be an effective European company in the future, to establish long-haul routes outside Poland, and connect central Europe with China,” Mr Karnowski says in an interview.

While PKP is dominant in its home market, Poland’s freight industry is predominantly a road business. It is mainly coal and aggregates that are shipped by rail. In 2014, PKP Cargo’s total revenue was €1bn, on which it made a net profit of €65m.



However, the company hopes that connecting Europe’s northern and southern coasts will expand its available markets and make better use of its 4,500 locomotives and more than 60,000 wagons.

Formed in 2001 as a restructured version of Poland’s Soviet-era rail operator, PKP today is still something of a sprawling and complex beast. One of its most profitable subsidiaries is a business that manages the 440km stretch of Russian gauge track from the Ukrainian border to Poland’s coal mining region.

But in 2013, the business, which remains fully owned by the Polish state, first brokered a fledging cargo train service between Chengdu in south-west China to Lodz in central Poland — cutting the journey time to 12 days, or about a third of the time it takes by sea.

Its latest expansion plans come amid a wider push by Poland’s government to encourage its largest and most successful state-controlled businesses to expand internationally. Chemicals company Grupa Azoty, for example, has plans to diversify its operations through acquisitions in the region, while miner KGHM has purchased mines in Chile, and oil company PKN Orlen has moved into Canadian energy.

Since Mr Karnowski’s arrival as chief executive in 2012, PKP has started selling off its non-core assets, such as a company that runs ski lifts in the Polish mountain resort of Zakopane. This month, it finalised the sale of its power production and supply unit, as part of a privatisation process that has eliminated the group’s debt, which totalled $1.3bn in 2012.

As part of its intention to scale up the cargo business, which it floated in 2013, the group is also in talks over an initial public offering of shares in its Intercity passenger service, which carries 30m people a year between Poland’s biggest cities.

“We want to repeat the route that we have taken with PKP Cargo,” Mr Karnowski says. “We don’t think full privatisation would be the best way to proceed, but we can sell the majority of the company and keep control.”

PKP SA, the state holding company, owns 33 per cent of PKP Cargo but a majority of the voting rights, with Merrill Lynch and the European Bank of Reconstruction and Development among other investors.

Nevertheless, for the business as a whole, efficiency challenges remain. PKP still owns about two dozen Soviet-era hotels in local holiday destinations that went out of fashion decades ago, and 1,600 train stations that are not in use. Only eight of its 600 operational stations make money.

Mr Karnowski says it is his “plan” to privatise the passenger business before 2018, when EU regulations mandating Poland to liberalise its passenger rail services is expected to come into force — allowing outside operators in.

The EU should certainly look whether PKP does not receive some not allowed support from the Polish government for the expansion.

PKP Cargo is listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange and there it can gather funds for expansion. PKP S.A. owns about 33% of it.
