The restructuring of state-owned railway freight operator HZ Cargo will continue in 2015, when a new attempt to privatise the company may be considered, a document posted on the website of Croatia’s state asset management office, DUUDI.
HZ Cargo is expected to record a gross loss of 16.7 million kuna (EUR 2.2 million) next year on revenues of 823.8 million kuna. The company, which is expected to end this year in the red as well, should invest 112.2 million kuna in 2015.
