On 25 October 2023 RAILPOOL has opened its office in Paris under the leadership of Frédérique Erlichman. A new legal entity “RAILPOOL France SAS” is being registered as a 100 % daughter of RAILPOOL.
RAILPOOL is the second largest lessor of electric locomotives in Europe and the largest in Germany. Torsten Lehnert, CEO of RAILPOOL, says: “The ongoing foundation of RAILPOOL France SAS and the opening of our French office base in Paris underlines our ambition to bring the benefits of real full-service rolling-stock lease to this country of rail tradition and innovation. We see a positive local market environment and are investing to participate in the growing French rail leasing market with the clear ambition to have a high-quality organization in place in France until the delivery of the first locomotives in 2025.”
With the order of 50 TRAXX Universal locomotives in July, RAILPOOL initially offers brand new locomotives to the market to cover sustainable high-performance rail transportation out of France and along the most important European corridors.
