With the new flat trajectory line and the opening of the Gotthard Base Tunnel (GBT), the requirements in the Swiss freight transport changed significantly. Multi-system locomotives became indispensable for continuous traction of the trains from the North Sea to Italy. When the SBB Cargo International rented Vectron MS locomotives from the Viennese leasing company ELL Austria GmbH in 2017, an increase in efficiency was achieved. The engines feature equipment for service in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy and the Netherlands (DACHINL).
