Grenland Rail AS History

Grenland Rail was founded when the rail service company Miljø og Veiservice AS needed transport capacity. The company developed into a transport service provider for freight wagons and equipment for Jernbaneverket. In 2012, Grenland Rail was granted a licence to operate goods in parts of Norway.

In 2014, this license was extended to the entire Norwegian railway network as well as the transport of dangerous goods, and in 2018 the license was changed from a small company to a medium enterprise. This gave Grenland Rail the ability to transport more than 500 million tonnes of goods per year.
