The firm TX Logistik is a railroad company established in 1999 that currently works closely with the firm Trenitalia, which has invested in it. TXL offers complex transport chains as a total service with objective of taking freight transport from the roads, particularly transit traffic, and moving it by rail. To do this, TXL has its own car roster, but most importantly it also has its own locomotives and engineers - running time on the railroads and power for the locomotives are purchased from the railroads over which the TXL trains run.
A high level of transportation quality, speed, and safety is reached with modern equipment and expert service - these are the critical factors in competition. TXL employs a total of 31 electric locomotives. The class 185 units are on a long term lease from their British owner Angel Trains (ATC).
