Our expertise

Ermewa wagonsWe are a leading freight wagon rental company in Europe with a fleet of over 47,000 wagons.

We also maintain, repair, and operate our wagons through our European network of workshops and certified partners.

For over 60 years, we have been meeting the needs and challenges of all industries. Our 120 railcars types can transport hazardous and non-hazardous liquids, gases, bulk materials, and general cargo, including food and non-food products.

With our experience in the rail sector, we work closely with industrial companies, railway companies and freight forwarders across Europe. We are a member of the main railway associations and programmes in Europe (among which: AFWP, VPI, TIS, DAC4EU, EDDP, UIC) where we actively participate in the development of the sector.

The circular economy has been in the company’s DNA since 1956 through five concrete actions: design, maintenance, reuse, refurbishment, and recycling. Ermewa SA is EcoVadis certified (gold medal) for its CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) performance.

On behalf of our customers, we invest in new railcars and refurbishments that meet the specific needs of the market, while ensuring the highest levels of performance, safety, and environmental standards. We are constantly listening to our customers’ needs to offer them optimal technical and economic solutions, while ensuring the safety of the products transported. The company has been ECM (Entity in Charge of Maintenance) certified since 2010.

Together with the market players, our ambition is to (re)invent rail freight transport, an efficient and safe mode of transport with a low carbon footprint.
