Cargo Transport

National borders no longer have a part to play in a world which is constantly moving closer together both economically and culturally. The same goes for rail. Regardless of whether the task involves passenger service or freight transport: Our locomotives facilitate cross-border traffic by eliminating locomotive changing operations and unnecessary waiting periods.

The flexible adaptation to country-specific train control systems and provision of additional equipment considerably shorten the certification process. Our platforms enable us to respond to the requirements of our customers in a flexible manner and to deliver even small order quantities quickly and cost-efficiently.
