pan-European passenger and freight services. CFR as an entity has been operating since 1880, even though the first railway on current Romanian territory was opened in 1854.

In 1998, ZINGA was accepted as anti-corrosion protection for wagons and carriages by the Romanian Ministry of Transport and the Romanian Railways.
