RAILPOOL, one of Europe’s leading rail vehicle leasing companies, and Inter Cargo, private railway carrier on the Polish network as a member of BUDAMAR GROUP, have signed a leasing agreement for two TRAXX locomotives including maintenance thereof.

“We are pleased to welcome Inter Cargo as our new customer. Inter Cargo and its parent company BUDAMAR GROUP have two decades of experience in cargo transport and will benefit from the strong performance of our locomotives and our full-service offering, guaranteeing maximum flexibility and vehicle availability,” says RAILPOOL CEO Torsten Lehnert.

Inter Cargo focuses on inland transport of finished products and raw material such as products for steel production as well as the international transport of rail consignments in import and export regimes. The two TRAXX BR 186 locomotives leased from RAILPOOL add to Inter Cargo’s own fleet of 22 electric locomotives and are scheduled for domestic transport within Poland. The vehicles went immediately into service after their delivery last week.

Sylwester Sigiel, CEO of Inter Cargo, explains: “Ever since our foundation we have put the complex needs of our customers into the focus and have therefore gained a prominent position on the market. It is key for us to maintain our high standards of offered service and we are convinced that the new partnership with RAILPOOL will support us in exceeding our customer’s expectations.”
