RAILPOOL EXPANDS COLLABORATION WITH TX LOGISTICS
December 7, 2020
Switzerland and especially the Swiss Alps are known for their picturesque railway lines, which are among the most beautiful in the world. We are pleased to announce that at the turn of the year 2020/2021, 9 of our state-of-the-art last-mile and multi-system locomotives will hit the rails in Switzerland for our customer TX Logistik.
TX Logistik has leased 7 multi-system locomotives of the 186 series with the country corridor D/A/CH/I, which will bring intermodal trains from Germany via Switzerland to Italy. In addition, two of our last-mile locomotives BR187 with the country corridor D/A/CH have been hired. Thanks to their integrated diesel engine, these two locomotives can conquer the first and last mile without a shunting locomotive.
“With TX Logistik, we have a reliable and long-standing partner at our side, with whom we have already been working for 10 years. We have currently leased an 18 locomotive fleet to TX Logistik, which is on the road in 11 countries from Scandinavia to Italy and Romania. We are very pleased about the new order and look forward to many more great years of collaboration.”, says Volkmar Günther, Sales Manager of RAILPOOL GMBH.
“The modernisation of the fleet is an important prerequisite for future transports on the Swiss corridor”, emphasises Albert Bastius, COO of TX Logistik. “We see good growth potential here, not least due to the infrastructure improvements on this corridor. The handling capacities of the new terminals that Mercitalia is currently building in northern Italy also make new connections through Switzerland attractive. We look forward to working together.”
