For several years now, IGE from Germany and IRSI/Transrail from Switzerland are working together, running international trains connecting Germany and Switzerland.

Internationale Gesellschaft für Eisenbahnverkehr (IGE) is a German rail transport company specialized in railway logistics and (special) rail freight transport.
