On 28 September 2007, the FNM Group ordered five Traxx DC electrics for its freight division Nordcargo. The order included an option for five more, of which three became a fixed order on 31.01.2008. All machines are painted in a neutral blue and grey livery with Nordcargo logos. The eight electrics were delivered from 01.2009 until 07.2009 by Bombardier from its factory in Vado Ligure (IT).
Note that in September 2008, DB Schenker took a 49% share in Nordcargo. Therefore, since delivery FNM E483s are often used for both Nordcargo and DB Schenker services. Per 01.01.2015, the company operates officially under the name DB Schenker Rail Italia services.
