The company was started historically 140 years ago as “Compagnie de Wagons-Lits” and is constantly doing rail business since then.
In 2010 Newrest bought Wagons-Lits and so Newrest Wagons-Lits was created.
The company is responsible for all the night trains which are operated by OEBB (Austrian Federal Railways).
The business nowadays includes:
- cleaning of wagons (before and during the trip)
Newrest Wagons Lits Austria is
ISO 9001 & 14001 certified.
Newrest Wagons-Lits Austria has nearly doubled its routes with our client ÖBB (Austrian federal railways). Teams are now on-board 32 trains a day with new routes between Salzburg, Munich, Rome, Milan and Venice and also Innsbruck, Munich and Hamburg. Moreover, the first route that does not pass through Austria was being opened with Zurich, Berlin and Hamburg. This new possibility created lots of new jobs, as the company grew from 250 employees to 640 within 12 months.
For this new big contract, we had to open new units in Salzburg and Innsbruck and get additional space at our existing unit in Graz. All of them are either situated directly at the railway stations or very close by. Those units are a new backbone for logistics and for the on-board employees to support upcoming growth.
