TX Logistik is underway with new safety certificate
Troisdorf, 1 July 2022 – The European Union Agency for Railways (ERA) has issued TX Logistik AG with a single safety certificate for transports in Germany and the Netherlands for further five years. The rail logistics company, which is part of the Mercitalia Group (Gruppo FS Italiane), is thus confirmed once again to fulfill the legal requirements for safe rail operations in both countries. The official certificate is valid until June 2027.
The re-certification was preceded by intensive preparation, in which TX Logistik had to demonstrate a comprehensive safety management system for controlling risks in rail operations in cooperation with numerous stakeholders, partners and service providers. All involved parties worked intensively on this issue. The certificate issued by ERA also authorises the transport of dangerous goods.
Safety is a priority for Mercitalia Group and TX Logistik. For the rail logistics company, which specialises in borderless transport networks, the new safety certificate is an essential prerequisite to ensure continuous traction. In the Netherlands, it has so far been operating on two routes. Six times a week, TX Logistik runs between Venlo and Melzo/Milan. In addition, the rail logistics company connects Rotterdam with Munich and Kornwestheim three times a week respectively.
The signs point to further growth: TX Logistik intends to fundamentally strengthen its presence in the Netherlands and gain new business there. With the renewed single safety certificate, the company has created the prerequisite for additional transports in the Netherlands, which it can also carry out under its own responsibility.
In addition to Germany and the Netherlands, TX Logistik has safety certificates in Austria, Italy, Denmark, Sweden and Switzerland.
