Green Cargo 185.2/Litt Re  
order 1: Green Cargo 185.2 series
On 16.01.2008, Green Cargo (Sweden) announced an order for six TRAXX 2 F140AC2 locomotives, with an option for ten more. Delivery started in April 2009. These machines will be used on the Sweden-Denmark-Germany corridor and will be operated by DB Schenker Rail Scandinavia S/A, a joint venture of Green Cargo (49%) and German operator DB Schenker (51%), which has its home base in Denmark.

The market for railfreight transport in Europe has gradually been liberalized since the 90s. Also the Swedish national railways (SJ) had to cut-up their activities and divide them over newly founded commercial companies. Green Cargo AB is since 2001 the name of the company that took over freight transport of the SJ.
After some years, Green Cargo also became an interesting prey for Railion Deutschland from Germany. A take-over was never realised, but a very close cooperation was. Railion Deutschland did take over the Danish freight operator DSB Gods and renamed it as Railion Denmark. In 2008 Railion Scandinavia was formed out of this company, while 49% of the company was sold to Green Cargo. In February 2009 Railion Scandinavia was renamed DB Schenker Rail Scandinavia.

This section is mainly about the Green Cargo units of the second order, those that are not part of the DB Schenker Rail Scandinavia pool. These units have the green GC livery. The DB Schenker Rail Scandinavia machines have their own section, check: DBSRS 185.2

order 2: Green Cargo Litt Re
On 31.10.2008, Green Cargo placed the order for another sixteen units, worth 51 million Euro. Delivery is scheduled for February-July 2010. One day earlier, Green Cargo made public that it had signed a contract with steel producer SSAB, for which these machines are needed. From 2010 to 2019, 4 million tonnes of slab and rolled steel annually wil be transported for SSAB. Greencargo will facilitate return services from Luleå and Borlänge, from Borlänge and Oxelösund and the shunting activities at the SSAB plants in both Oxelösund and Borlänge.
