RTB leases three locomotives from Northrail
Northrail, which leases and manages the rolling stock of the Hamburg (Germany)-based Paribus group, is leasing three Siemens Smartron locomotives to RTB Cargo. The railfreight division of the R.A.T.H. holding with branches in Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands and Austria is planning to deploy the locomotives for automobile transports within Germany. The leasing contracts are valid for up to five years.
Northrail is the first provider to add this high-performance and energy-saving type of locomotive to its portfolio. With this contract, the company is strengthening its relationship with RTB Cargo that has been its customer since 2013.
RTB Cargo offers cross-border rail transportation from Eastern Europe to the large North Sea ports as well as services within Germany and “last-mile” deliveries to its customers. (ah)
