"The short-term availability of the Vectron locomotives enables us to respond flexibly to current customer demand. With the Vectron, we are well-positioned, especially for operations along the Germany-Austria-Hungary corridor, and we look forward to further expanding our partnership with Siemens," said Torsten Lehnert, CEO of Railpool.
"Our sales storage concept enables us to meet short-term delivery requests from our customers. In detail, the concept entails maintaining an inventory of chassis, driver cabs, locomotive bodies, frames and bogies in the Siemens factories. The locomotive's machine room has fixed positions for all components and is individually fitted once the customer has placed an order," explained Sabrina Soussan, CEO of Siemens' business with high-speed/regional trains and locomotives.
