TX Logistik AG has signed a contract with Bombardier for the delivery of 40 TRAXX MS3 multi-system locomotives. The contract also includes a 15 years fleet maintenance agreement with preventive and corrective maintenance that will provide TX Logistik with a higher operational fleet reliability and availability.
The contract also includes an option for up to 25 more locomotives. The delivery of the locomotives is planned to start in summer 2019.
Mirko Pahl, CEO, TX Logistik, says, “The TRAXX MS3 locomotive will be used on our main operating lines, namely the Germany – Italy corridor but also Swiss networks. This locomotive enables us to offer our customers an effective cross-border transport solution while optimizing our costs”.
Albert Bastius, TX Logistik added: «The new locomotive increases our Bombardier fleet by a multi-system locomotive with an innovative, modular design, which can be easily configured for different countries. The benefit: The number of locomotive changes will be drastically reduced and punctuality will increase».
