Takargo – Transporte de Mercadorias, SA is the first Portuguese private rail freight operator. It is committed to implement a culture of excellence focused on customer satisfaction, valuing employees, complying with safety rules, and following good environmental practices.

Rolling Stock

Combining the technical capacity of its staff, ambition, and strong unconditional support from the shareholder, it was possible to turn Takargo into a benchmark company in intermodal logistics operations.

Takargo currently operates a vast set of locomotives, wagons, and intermodal transport units, both owned and leased, with emphasis on its fleet of Euro 4000 interoperable diesel-electric locomotives, which allows it to offer highly competitive Iberian services.

Partnerships

In June 2008, Ibercargo Rail, SA was created in partnership with Comsa Rail Transport (currently called Captrain España), a Spanish freight rail operator.
