“We are pleased that ENNA Transport has selected us as their trusted locomotive leasing partner for the upcoming years, solidifying our entry to the Balkan market. The won contract confirms our service approach with strong local partnerships and our maintenance partner in Croatia. ENNA Transport has really been a key actor at the growing cargo hub port of Rijeka and in the country as an increasingly important transportation gateway in general. We are glad to support their growing business operations by providing a reliable locomotive fleet along with maximum availability,” says RAILPOOL CEO Torsten Lehnert.
RAILPOOL operates their own service facilities and counts on a strong network with local maintenance partners in proximity of their customers for swift support.

Therefore, next to the locomotive’s impressive test run performance on the steep stretch between Port of Rijeka and Lokve with a gradient of 29 per mil, it was RAILPOOL’s impressive service competence that was decisive for our decision making. Highest flexibility, their team of flying engineers and a local maintenance partner with service facilities in Zagreb convinced us.”
