History of the Centre

The Centre for Forest Transportation in Świebodzin is a continuer of Forest Transportation Enterprise established on 1st November 1995.

Up until the early 90s it had been running mainly wood transportation on the area governed by Regional OZLP (Territorial Management of State Forests) in Zielona Góra. Since 28.09.1991 the Centre for Forest Transportation (OTL) has been a unit of State Forests and has been operating on the basis of forestry Bill. Within the last years OTL has significantly widened its range of activity.
