We Alpinists rely on each other

Angebot. Partnerschaft

Whether it be from the North Sea to the Mediterranean, from Belgium on further corridors or on the way to Switzerland, you can rely on us. We transport your goods safely, reliably and sustainably and take responsibility from the starting point to the destination – with a direct and personal contact person.

We move mountains for you

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 tailor-made 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.

Wagons and wagon supply

We're happy to take care of the provision and management of wagons for you. We have excellent relationships with wagon rental companies and are able to advise you on the optimal wagon fleet. We organise wagons according to your needs and manage them during operations.

We Alpinists are close by

Whether it be within the BLS Cargo Group in Belgium, Germany, Switzerland and Italy or with our long-standing partner railways, we’re rooted in the heart of Europe and focus our business on the major rail freight axes in Belgium, Germany, Switzerland and Italy.

Always there for you

Personal, with long-term partnerships and open to new ideas. That is BLS Cargo.

Stärken von BLS Cargo

Personal support

Our Key Account Managers give a face to our service and accompany you from the offer to the implementation of the transport. This is because, as Alpinists, we know how important trust and short distances are. 

There for you 24/7

We take care of your transport day and night. Whether locomotive driver, dispatcher or wagon master, our operational units are on duty 24/7: experienced, multilingual and with a lot of expertise. 

Long-term partnerships

We achieve big goals and reach high summits more easily if we know each other and can rely on each other. That’s why we don’t look for customers for a day trip, but partners for the big expedition. Personal contacts and long-term partnerships are our keys to success. 

Open to new ideas

As a lean organisation, we’re open to new ideas. We follow the relevant trends in the industry and champion the small, inconspicuous innovations. These can be implemented promptly and take effect quickly, helping us to continuously improve our day-to-day business.
