  • How do railway transport and

In principal, cooperation with Rail&Sea is simple: you send us a request, we provide you a custom-made offer.

In the first step, we will develop the best transport solution for your products for you. For instance, fluids have to be transported in a different way than raw wood.

After that, we create railway logistics for you that meet your individual requirements. In this regard, railway transport offers you extensive flexibility:

  • Loading
    Trains can be loaded at night and during weekends as well.
  • Product management
    You can produce large quantities at once and immediately load them.
  • Lower storage expenses
    You can send large quantities at once and you are not forced to produce small shipment lots and/or store the rest in the meantime.

When we create an offer for you, we consider elements beyond the services required for transport from A to B. Our logistics consultation exceeds basic railway transport. Often, we can also achieve internal efficiency benefits , from transport logistics to distribution logistics, and storage logistics (e.g. in certain cases, freight trains or containers can also be used for short-term storage)

This means: we will help you to find the actual optimum solution.

Fast, reliable and cost-efficient – How is that possible?

PRICE CALCULATION WITHOUT BEING BOUND TO A TARIFF

Our easiest way to minimise the transport costs on the rails, lies in our cost calculation. We make use of state and private railways undertakings, which enables us to provide the most efficient solution.

Example: If you would like to transport a cargo from A to B, it might be that our train rides with a private EVU in starting country A, with the state train in transit country C and again with a private EVU in the recipient country..

RAILWAY TRANSPORT BEGINS WITH THE LOADING TRACK

Our railway logistics are closely connected to the cost structure. We analyse the infrastructure and processes onsite at your location as our customer and think through consider all cost issues up to the recipient. This way, we often discover a clear cost-saving potential.

Example: Thanks to modern moving equipment and IT-guided process management, we reduce expenses for staff and locomotion and energy costs on your railway structure.

100% PLANNABLE THANKS TO MODERN GPS-TRACKING

We offer you the most modern digital services. Therefore, you will know where your cargo is at any time and to the exact mile. You will be able to plan precisely when it will arrive and can view this in real-time, also checking whether if there are unexpected complications on the rails.

Example: With GPS, we keep an eye on the track of the train wagon and this waythus, you will always know where is your cargo is. The days when you sent cargo from Hamburg to Milan and didn’t know when it would arrive, are over.
