Company History


In 2020, ČD - Telematika has continuously focused on providing services and maintenance of ŽTM for Správa železnic. In April 2020, however, Správa železnic announced to ČD - Telematika its intention to secure this activity with its own resources and invited ČD - Telematika to start negotiations about the sale of the part of the plant providing this activity.
