About us

Roots in Vienna, at home throughout Europe. WLC is an internationally active rail freight service operator which organises transportation throughout Europe either as block trains or conventional rail traffic. Our far-reaching international network enables us to offer tailor-made logistics services from the North Sea to the Black Sea and from the Baltic Sea to the Mediterranean Sea. True to our motto, Excellence in Transport, we are under way on Europe’s rail networks providing our clients with outstanding service quality. Flexibility and customer proximity are among our greatest strengths. 

Although founded in 2007, our DNA dates back to the 19th Century when bricks were transported on the infrastructure of what is now the Badner Bahn tracks heading south from Vienna. We are today among the leading and most innovative rail freight service operators in Austria. 

Around 75% of our core business is made up of combined freight transport. The remaining 25% consists of wagonload freight services in which many different products, such as cars, chemicals, mineral oil products, cereals, coal, etc., are transported.

New Green Deal

We also attach considerable importance to the environment and sustainability. We are making an active contribution to the New Green Deal and playing a major role in reaching Europe’s climate protection goals.

Locations

With our head offices in the Port of Vienna and subsidiaries in Germany and soon the Czech Republic, we are ideally situated for offering transportation services across Europe.

Since 2013, our subsidiary in the south of Berlin has extended our service offering and brought us closer to our clients in Germany. In 2021, we are setting up our own organisation step-by-step in the Czech Republic so that we can also manage regular services in this region. The aim is to establish our own WLC subsidiary in the Czech Republic.
