Until April 2001, Siemens supplied three Eurosprinter locomotives to the Swiss combined transport provider HPAC. The two-system locomotive is used in cross-border freight operations between Switzerland and Germany. Siemens was the first manufacturer of electric locomotives to receive the homologation for both countries in April 2002. The vehicles are equipped to operate seamlessly from the German seaports to Switzerland and across the Alps to the Italian border.

As the first private railway operator in Germany, Mittelweserbahn ordered a two-system high-performance locomotive from the Eurosprinter family in April 2003. The follow-up order for a second vehicle was placed in December 2004. The High-Performance Locomotive 1116 are used in cross-border container traffic between Germany and Austria. High performance, reliability and short delivery times were decisive for the order.
