Our history

The early years of our existence were marked by a series of acquisitions in the field of private secondary network operation and industrial spurs (known as Installations Terminales Embranchées or ITE in French). In October 2007 we were awarded our safety certificate enabling us to use the national railway network. Find out more below about our key milestone dates since our foundation in 1998.
