The HEROS Helvetic Rolling Stock Group consists of three individual companies that process the sale of railway vehicles inside and outside of Europe and conduct the renting and leasing of railroad rolling stock on the basis of proven vehicle concepts. HEROS Helvetic Rolling Stock GmbH is responsible for marketing within Europe and Turkey, while HEROS America Middle East Asia GmbH is responsible for vehicle solutions around the world. HEROS Rail Rent GmbH is the right contact for renting rail vehicles.
HEROS Helvetic Rolling Stock GmbH sells locomotives, passenger coaches, multiple units, and other rail vehicles in Europe. It offers public and private railway transport companies and vehicle provision companies interesting and proven vehicle concepts for covering short, medium and long-term transport needs. Both the vehicles and the necessary railway-specific services in connection with the vehicles are matched to the regional and customer-specific preferences and put together to form a complete package. In addition, owners and operators of rail vehicles are offered marketing services for their vehicles along with valuation reports and analysis for used passenger coaches (railcars) (incl. sitting coaches, couchette coaches, sleeper coaches, restaurant cars, and buffet cars), multiple units, and locomotives.
HEROS America Middle East Asia GmbH is the contact for railway transport companies, operators and workshops outside of Europe that are planning to acquire used railway vehicles. Experts who have been selling rail vehicles to America, the Middle East and Asia for years provide consultation here on the services that are necessary and important for delivery and service projects outside of Europe. Matters concerning needs-optimised concept planning, customer-oriented compilation of vehicle fleets for the planned transports and country-specific adaptations are agreed upon jointly. Reliable and long-term solutions are also worked out together with operators for maintenance-related issues. In particular, added value in the target country is carefully considered according to individual, country-specific aspects.
HEROS Rail Rent GmbH is responsible for the renting and leasing of railway vehicles. The company offers rental solutions for selected rail vehicles in the area of local passenger transport, national and international long-distance transport and traction with diesel locomotives in passenger and freight transport. The vehicles are adapted and provided according to the particular customer preferences and the country-specific situation. Moreover, it also adapts its service concepts (full service, shared service, material service, dry lease) for the rented vehicles to suit the individual needs and preferences of the respective railway transport company, rail vehicle operator or vehicle provider.
Thanks to experience with its own rental fleet, additional services in the area of fleet management and technical controlling are also part of its service portfolio. The value preservation services for vehicles supported by lasting modification and modernisation measures and by consistent and predictive maintenance are professionally supervised and evaluated in order to guarantee the greatest possible value preservation and long-term use for vehicle owners
