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.
