We continuously invest in the expansion and renewal of our fleet – and are proud to operate one of the youngest and most modern fleets in Europe. We maintain our own Project Development department and therefore have extensive new building and modernisation experience. We can adapt special railcars in our own workshop to meet your needs exactly - even in small series and at attractive prices.
Thanks to our close and long-term relationships with railcar manufacturers, we are in a position to procure railcars on relatively short notice, if necessary, and still at favourable costs. Also large series can be procured by us whenever needed.
Innovation is a priority for us at all times: For example, by implementing technical and design measures, we successfully reduced the tare weight of the mineral oil car of type „1687/1697“ so the load capacity is three tons more than for comparable wagons. This approach has triggered a new trend in the market.
