In 2022, the first of five EffiShunter 1000 locos ordered by Trainpoint Norway arrived in Sweden. Loco 744 144-7 was then used for test runs to obtain homologation.
Now, the next three locos have left the CZ LOKO works in Jihlava. They were seen behind RailAdventure 2016 902 heading towards Dresden, after just having passed the Czech/German border. The locos in question are 744 157-9, 744 158-7 and 744 159-5. This means that only 744 160-3 is still to be outshopped.
The first 2 out of 14 EffiShunter 1000M locos for CD were outshopped by CZ LOKO in Mai 2023. In contrast to the EffiShunter 1000M locos operated by CD Cargo, which are registered in the 742.71 series, the CD locos are numbered in the 743.2 series. The locos in question carry the numbers 743 201-6 and 743 202-4. All 14 locos will be delivered with ETCS L2 and LS06 on board.
CZ LOKO has received an order from DB Cargo for the delivery of four EffiShunter 1000 locomotives. The locos will predominantly be used by DB Cargo Italia for its single-wagon work.
CZ LOKO has completed and delivered another EffiShunter 1000 for an Italian customer. Loco 744 148-8 was delivered to TPER S.A. in the first months of 2023 and is operated by Dinazzano Po S.A.
Akiem 77501 has been seen on the back of a low loader heading for the UK. There the loco will be modified to UK standards and leased to GB Railfreight as part of a 10-year lease agreement for 11 locomotives in total.
Shortly before the end of 2022, RailAdventure acquired loco 2016 902 from Steiermarkbahn. Configured for Austria, Germany, Hungary and Slovenia, the loco did not start its career in the StB livery. On February 14th, it made a trip through Bavaria with the Luxon panoramic car in full RailAdventure colour scheme. Pictures: Henk Zwoferink.
Slovak railfreight operator PSZ has ordered two EffiShunter 1000 locomotives from CZ LOKO. The locomotives are to be delivered early 2025. The locomotives will be configured for use in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Romania, which Romania being a first for the type.

Lübeck-based Spedition Bode has seen its logo applied on Rail Cargo Carrier - Germany's 223 153, sporting a partnership between the two companies. Additionally, the loco carries the Rail Cargo Carrier and Lehmann logos. The PCT logos have gone, as Rail Cargo Carrier - PCT has been merged into Rail Cargo Carrier - Germany.
