CTL Logistics, the largest Polish independent rail freight operator, has revealed its strategy to compensate for the significant fall in demand for freight services from chemical producers in Poland, which began to be felt in the last half of 2008, Puls Biznesu informs. CTL plans to triple its fuel transport volume in 2009, from 1.1 million tonnes in 2008 to 3 million tonnes in 2009. It is also relying on the revival of road building in 2009, so that it will be able provide materials transport services to road builders. The company's chemical transports completely stopped in the final quarter of 2008. This represents 15% of its overall business, but as much as 80% of its rail sidings operations. This is why the company has decided to make a radical change in its strategy for 2009, with an uncertain 2009 predicted for chemicals producers.
