From Austria to Xingang | 1,450 tonnes of short and long tracks

Case study about working with various logistics partners, Fr. Meyers Sohn shipped rail tracks to Xingang | China. Everyone involved worked and coordinated well, and an outstanding series of photographs of the entire value added process was produced, so the client was more than satisfied.

The brief:

Tracks up to 67 m long with a total weight of around 1,450 tonnes - the question was, how to get tracks like these, which are used for high speed lines in China, from A to B. This was not the first shipment of its kind, but the dimensions were well above anything we had shipped before.

The solution:

The tracks were transported by rail to Brake | Germany on complete cars, partially bundled and partially unbundled. The tracks were loaded and unloaded without damage using special cargo gear. As part of this value added chain, the tracks were unloaded, bundled, covered with tarpaulins, documented in a survey report, and then transferred to Hamburg using a coastal cargo vessel. In Hamburg, the short and long track sections were transshipped again and taken from Hamburg | Germany to Xingang | China by ocean vessel.

 

The result:

Through careful preparation and close coordination with our selected, long-standing partners, we managed to complete this project in just one and a half months. Excellent collaboration between everyone involved allowed us to reliably ship 1,450 tonnes of steel rails halfway around the world.
