A well-functioning logistics infrastructure is a key element of the ORLEN Group's competitive edge.
The Group uses a network of complementary infrastructure components: fuel terminals, on-shore and off-shore handling terminals, a network of product and raw material transmission pipelines, as well as road and railway transport. The ORLEN Group's logistics companies are ORLEN KolTrans Sp. z o.o. and ORLEN Transport S.A. in Poland, and Unipetrol Doprava s.r.o. and Petrotrans s.r.o. in the Czech Republic.
In 2013, the ORLEN Group products were transported by pipelines, railway and road tankers.

ORLEN Lietuva Group
Due to suspension of transport via the Drzhba Pipeline in 2006, crude oil is transported to the ORLEN Lietuva refinery by sea via the Būtingė Terminal and the pipeline. Storage capacities for the company's operational needs are secured under the long-term contract with AB Klaipėdos Nafta, signed in 2012.
In 2013, a letter of intent on the possible joint construction of a product pipeline in Lithuania was signed with AB Klaipėdos Nafta.
