"With the expansion of our Vectron fleet, we are almost completely replacing our old Re 620 and Re 420 fleet, which was designed exclusively for service in Switzerland,and are focusing on an efficient, state-of-the-art multisystem locomotive fleet that will be an important building block for us in view of the opening of the Ceneri Base Tunnel in late 2020," said Sven Flore, CEO of SBB Cargo International.
"With our multisystem locomotives, SBB Cargo International can operate on the Rhine-Alpine Corridor from the Netherlands to Italy without changing locomotives, ensuring that freight transport in Europe is quick, efficient and environmentally friendly. The full service contract guarantees our customer optimal availability," said Sabrina Soussan, CEO of Siemens Mobility.
