Locomotives, rolling stock, special vehicles and parts thereof

Poland is one of Europe’s major exporters of many types of rail vehicles. Poland’s main partners in this industry, in terms of value of exported goods, are Germany, the United States, and Austria. In 2021, exports of the industry accounted for 1.6% of Polish goods exports. Poland is home to both companies that are part of international supply chains within large corporations and compact plants that are able to join the competition with market giants.

The Polish railroad sector is attractive to foreign importers due to the rapid technological development of the industry, modern production methods, highly qualified staff with specialist knowledge, attractive labour costs compared to Western European countries and comprehensive customer service and quick response to their needs.
