The national government officially took over the control of cargo train company Belgrano Cargas for a period of 90 days, in order to "review the performance" of the service.
The measure was published today in the Official Gazette.
Belgrano Cargas was being run by a business group which included Grupo Macri, Grupo Roggio, Emepa company and the Railway and Truck Driver’s labour unions.
