DB Cargo Italia ordered four EffiShunter 1000 locomotives in early October 2022.
On 1 February 2024, ČD announced that it has already got back all 14 locomotives of the Class 742, which were redesignated to the Class 743.2 after modernisation to the Type EffiShunter 1000M.
A prototype of a dual-mode locomotive developed by CZ LOKO has completed its first test runs outside the manufacturer's premises (and the adjacent test tracks).
CZ LOKO, which won the contract for the complete modernization of 14 Class 742 locomotives to the EffiShunter 1000M type, handed over the first of them to ČD on 27 June 2023.
CZ LOKO is now also working on the order for five EffiShunter 1000s for Trainpoint Norway.
