Inspection and maintenance of Deutsche Bahn (DB) vehicles by Logistik Service GmbH (LogServ) will be expanded to a second route. And LogServ will now also service Innofreight containers.

Mobile service command

The mobile LogServ team had already convinced the DB at the container terminal’s service support point in Ennshafen. And recently, they also started servicing the support point in Graz. LogServ is therefore now responsible for the maintenance of the Neuss—Frankfurt—Graz route, considerably increasing the availability of DB transport.

At the support point, they repair, assess, and routinely inspect the railway wagons. Wagons that have issues are uncoupled and replaced by buffer cars. Thanks to the mobile LogServ rolling stock team, damaged wagons can be put back on the tracks within 24 hours. Brake pads are perennial repair candidates. Due to the fast repair times, there is no downtime and unpleasant surprises are avoided.

Different type of roadside service

At least once a week, the LogServ service team drives to Graz and repairs damaged wagons in cooperation with the Styrian Federal Railway. In addition to its flexibility, it was LogServ’s ability to provide on-site service that was the decisive factor for the extension of the DB contract. Beyond the support points in Enns, Passau, Lambach, and now Graz, the flying rolling stock team is mainly active in Austria and neighboring countries.

In addition to the DB contract, LogServ was also awarded the contract to service the adaptable Innofreight containers. The service team is responsible for maintenance, repairing any hydraulic, mechanical, and lock damage.
