Operation of “silent wagons”

With effect from 1 January 2020, Switzerland shall apply Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/774 on the reduction of noise from rolling stock. We remind all customers that only consignments loaded in wagons equipped with silent brake blocks will be accepted for transport to or transit through Switzerland. These are wagons which have next to the inscription of the type of the brake additional marks “K”, “L”, “LL”, or wagons with disc brakes, where the letter “D” is indicated.

Memorandum on Strategic Cooperation

On July 11, 2019, a memorandum on strategic cooperation between ČD Cargo and Chinese Railways - CRCT - was officially signed.

Chinese Railways signed a serious interest in establishing a solid business relationship with ČD Cargo. In the near future we can expect the launch of another new connection from China to the Czech Republic. The Chinese side is also interested in reloading and depositing containers and using ČD Cargo's warehouses in Lovosice.

China Railway Container Transport Company (CRCT) is a wholly owned subsidiary of Chinese Railways, which is responsible for all container shipments from the People's Republic of China to Europe and Russia.
