Amber Rail started a cooperation with the Turkish operator “Turkrail”. The new Turkish company is
operating since 2017 intermodal blocktrains between the main Istanbul intermodal terminal Halkali
and the Austrian capital.

Amber Rail’s philosophy, to research and develop the regional intermodal railway market obliges the
company to design new products. Maybe, the most important one – in the region – is to replace the
“missing link” between some of the main intermodal terminals of the region.

After 3 years cooperation with the Group Trade Trans, decided GYSEV CARGO to define a new setup
for its subsidiary Amber Rail. The joint venture was established for develop the forwarder’s activity
on the Central European north-south railway axle. However, in the meantime GYC realized the
importance of intermodal transports, and changed the strategy for its subsidiary.
