Lineas is the largest private rail freight operator in Europe offering premium rail products and total door-to-door logistics solutions. Our mission is to offer such superior rail products and services that customers shift the transport of their goods from road to rail. This allows them to improve their supply chain while decreasing their impact on mobility, climate and air pollution.

IT Project Manager

Goods transport by train will become increasingly more important in the future. It is far less detrimental to the environment and mobility than road transport. Furthermore, it is often safer and more efficient.

Lineas is one of the largest European private enterprises in the area of goods transport by rail.

We therefore believe that it is our responsibility to convince companies to opt for the modal shift away from the road towards more goods by rail.

We carry out that ambitious task with the best products, innovative services, a large fleet and a great deal of passion and input for our customers. We want to grow and make a real difference on an international scale.
