Although not part of the EU (yet), Croatia decided to split the national company in 4 divisions, for maintenance and construction of railways (HZ Infrastruktura), for passenger trains (HZ Putnicki prijevoz), for freight trains (HZ Cargo), and a division for motive power (HZ Vuca vlakova). The division took place on 1 January 2007.
In 2002 passenger numbers fell by 8% to 16.1 million passengers. Freight traffic grew by 6.3% to 2.2 million tonnes.

In 2014 HZ Cargo transported 9.9 million tonnes of freight, 0.5 million tonnes less than in 2014.

In December 2012 and January 2013 the last 3000V= electrified lines around Rijeka were converted to 25kV. The remaining DC locomotives were stored.
