Hupac orders eight multisystem locomotives from Siemens

With the new locomotives, Hupac and its partners will be expanding their offering for rail transport service from central European hubs, such as the logistics center Rotterdam, via the main rail corridors between the Netherlands, Germany, Austria and Switzerland and into the Mediterranean region. The new Vectrons will enable transport operators partnering with Hupac to connect the European economic regions north and south of the Alps with service through the new Gotthard Base Tunnel.
"With this investment in Vectron locomotives, we can more efficiently serve the Rhine-Alpine Corridor through the internationally integrated traction," said Bernard Kunz, Managing Director of Hupac AG.
