LOCON Logistik & Consulting AG, headquartered in the Berlin-Adlershof technology park, is a privately owned, medium-sized railroad company. Since our foundation in 2002, we have been showing what is possible in the railway industry. Our main fields of activity are freight transport and construction logistics. Quick decision making and flexibility are our key attributes. From its founding to today, real railway workers have been working on our board of directors. In this way, we combine entrepreneurial thinking with experience and practical knowledge. Our customers experience this advantage on every route and in every construction field.
2019, we have been part of the Czech Republic's
and thus part of the
With a strong partner in an international network, LOCON AG is now
opening up new opportunities throughout Europe.
As a rail transport company, we take responsibility for sustainable and environmentally friendly growth. For us, entrepreneurial thinking and social action go hand in hand. The wishes and expectations of our customers are the focus of our work and our employees are our most important asset - not only on paper. We offer secure, fairly paid and sustainable jobs with high demands and a high degree of responsibility - but also with opportunity for action and freedom.
We listen and endeavour to take up and implement the wishes and justified demands of both our clients and our employees; we offer our colleagues the chance to think, participate and help shape the future. Although the railway profession is still male dominated, we will give women equal opportunities in the future.
The railway worker profession needs to remain of high value in the future. Our wish is that our children and grandchildren will still look with pride at the professions of their parents and grandparents and continue our mission with the same railway worker blood in their hearts.
We keep around 40 locomotives and hundreds of freight wagons permanently on standby for construction logistics and freight transport. Our employees are railroad enthusiasts - from consulting and scheduling to our train drivers, wagon technicians and shunting attendants. The low employee turnaround makes us particularly proud; our employees have been with us for years, even decades and have grown with us (and we with them). This creates the special LOCON connection which is valued by our regular customers.
So that you can rely on every project planning, our in-house workshop maintains and services our fleet of locomotives and wagons - VPI-certified of course.
