(We managed this by using electronic systems for transport control (TMS) and successive analyses including practical training of economical driving. In 2022 we will implement a new more advanced system TMS, which enables increase in efficiency and fulfillment of our given goals. Carry out tests of alternative engines and fuels, follow trends and new technical solutions for their future effective application in our transport services.
