Hector Rail runs steel trains Borlänge – Trelleborg for DB Schenker

DB Schenker has been contracted by SSAB to transport sheet steel rolls (coils) from their rolling mill in Borlänge to their customers in Germany and other destinations on the continent. DB Schenker has in turn given Hector Rail the confidence to run the trains in Sweden between Borlänge and the railway ferry port in Trelleborg, including shunting on the ferry. The agreement is valid for three years. The first train ran on the 5th of January.

Whereas the frequency initially is three trains per week, the agreement provides an opportunity to increase the frequency to four trains / week and direction. Hector Rail supplies modern powerful locomotives that allow train weights of up to 2000 tons. Another advantage of modern locomotives is that they are equipped with electric brakes which re-generate braking energy as electricity to the grid. This reduces the environmental impact of these transports.

Hector Rail has established a shunting operation in Trelleborg with a shunting locomotive and staff to shift wagons on and off the ferries.

For SSAB, the cooperation between DB Schenker and Hector Rail opens up attractive opportunities for alternative transport arrangements, which allows us to continue to provide the best possible service to our customers.
