Kick-off for "heavy" project logistics
From Novosibirsk in Siberia to St. Petersburg: For a mechanical engineering company, RZD Logistik (RZDL) recently organised the shipment of especially large and heavy electric equipment across Russia using rail and road transport. The 140 t cargo was delivered safely and punctually to its destination.
On the train, the heavy cargo was conveyed on a special route and with the help of special rolling stock in a 16-axle transport wagon with a carrying capacity of 220 t, RZDL said.
The equipment and machine parts will be used for the reconstruction of a large industrial plant in St. Petersburg.
With this assignment, RZDL has launched a new business segment for project logistics for deliveries of heavy, long and oversized cargo. (ben)
