We Alpinists always find a way


As a group of experienced Alpinists and a lean corridor operator in rail freight traffic, we ensure that the mountains don't get in the way of your destination. Alpinists like to travel together. That’s why we maintain trusting partnerships with you as our customers: cordial and at eye level.

You provide the goods – we get them to their destination

We’re committed to transporting your goods sustainably, safely and reliably, and we take responsibility for ensuring they arrive at their destination.


Overall responsibility

We don't just get your goods from A to B, but take over responsibility for your transport from A to Z: We plan the trains, drive them ourselves or with one of our long-standing rail partners and take care of the scheduling of the staff and locomotives. As we are your single point of contact from departure to destination, you can sit back and relax.

Customised solutions

With us, there are no off-the-peg solutions. We’re used to listening and we look forward to working with you to find the best solution together. As a lean organisation, we can implement innovations quickly and react to changes. Everything is tailored to your needs, from the planning to the implementation of the transport.

Specialist for block trains

We think in terms of block trains and come up with clever transport concepts. Our more than 400 employees work hard to achieve this every day. To remain lean and agile, we focus our activities on the axes from the North Sea to the Mediterranean and from Belgium to other corridors.


Together we master summits more easily

Are you fascinated by rail freight traffic and want a meaningful job? When you work with us, you contribute every day to making the world a little better. By helping to shift traffic from road to rail. You can be part of this too.
