Development Being an industry leader, over-achievement of the set objectives is only possible through development - accepting challenges, seeing opportunities and finding new solutions. Therefore we are focussed on continuous personal and holding growth. The pursuit of new ideas and technologies is how we strive for excellence on a daily basis.
Responsibility Both on a personal and team level, we are responsible for the holding's performance, contribution to the national economy and a better future.

We care about the impact of the holding's operations on the environment and the quality of life of society in general, therefore we actively participate in and support key public areas and events.
We respect industrial heritage and take care about handing it over to generations to come.

Safety We are able to see and manage risks. We work to eliminate any risk situations on the railway because safety is one of our priorities. We are ready at any time to prevent accidents and consciously minimise the impact on the environment.
Cooperation Ensuring effective infrastructure management and logistics services and promptly resolving issues is only possible in coordinated operation. We work together to achieve common goals. We do this by sharing knowledge and experience, as well as a willingness to help, thus contributing to the development of the holding, partners and the state.
