“Locomotives will be used mainly for intermodal trains, not only with containers, but also with road semi-trailers.

“In June, we plan to deploy Vectron on an already running train with semi-trailers between Brno and Rostock, new locomotives could be found in Braunschweig, Koper, and certainly in Austria.”
