IMS is the biggest private container operator in Austria with own block train connections. As a flexible and neutral container operator, the company offers its customers tailored services and integrated concepts for intermodal container transport all over continental Europe.

Joan Dubaere, ICF liquidator and Lawyer of the Belgian Lawyers Racine and Vergels in Brussels, is very positive about this solution: ‘with IMS, we found a long-time ICF customer and experienced partner, who guarantees for a high quality continuation of the traffics in Western Europe. I’m convinced that customers trust in this solution and continue to hand over container transport to the new provider.’

Wolfgang Tomassovich, CEO IMS GmbH, Vienna: ‘For IMS, the succession means an optimal continuation of the connection between Wolfurt and German seaports which is of particular importance for the Austrian market. At the same time, the Swiss market profits of an optimal and important solution: high-quality intermodal transport services to and from sea ports in the Northern and Western range continues to be operated by a neutral intermodal operator.’
