About us

METRANS Rail is a dynamically developing rail carrier, focusing on combined transport.

The company was founded in 2003 by Mr. Petr Šimral and Mr. Radan Stift in order to provide both passenger and freight services in rail transport under the original name of RAILTRANS Ltd.. The first two diesel locomotives V 100 approved in Germany as well as in Czech Republic in cooperation with the German carrier TSD GmbH, ensured the running of the trains without changing the locomotives at the border.

In 2008, cooperation with METRANS, a.s. has began with the operation of irregular trains between Prague Uhříněves and the German terminals in Bavaria. Since 2010 the company has been providing regular container trains for METRANS Prague Uhříněves – Rotterdam with a modern multi-system locomotive Bombardier TRAXX MS2.

In 2009 the company joined METRANS, a.s. and since 2014 the company has full control. From that stage originates the present name of METRANS Rail Ltd.
