The Softronic group was founded in 1999 and consists of the rolling stock manufacturer Softronic and the railway freight and passenger operator Softrans. Green Cargo is a Swedish state-owned logistics company with 1800 employees and an annual turnover of 400 million euros.

For two and a half months, we have been negotiating this contract, which is extremely important for the Romanian company, especially considering that the Romanian industry has greatly reduced over the past three decades, reports Softronic Craiova.
