Railway transportation is not only particularly sustainable, but is also faster than shipping and cheaper than air operations. But it is not always possible to use rail transport for the complete journey. We therefore handle the pick-up and final delivery runs for you and combine several means of transport to form multi-modal transport chains. We have tri-modal rail ports available at several locations for this purpose.
The liberalisation of the European railway markets has opened up a wide variety of prospects. As a result, we operate individual wagon and block train services between all the countries in Western and Eastern Europe – and beyond the European Union too. Railway transport is often the most sensible solution outside the EU. Shipments can often be handled faster by rail because customs clearance takes place during the journey; as a result, there are no waiting times at border crossings.
We have the necessary equipment to tranship your goods from ship to rail or from railway wagons to trucks, for example, and can lift even the heaviest loads. NotableLogistics has a customs broker licence for the most important export nations. But that is not all: we can also easily handle the transhipment of your goods from the normal gauge used in Europe, North America and Africa to the larger broad gauge. We have our own office at Malaszewicze in Poland where the gauge changes and it monitors transhipment operations involving the reloading of wagons.
Our railway specialist, NotableLogistics, develops and handles rail logistics concepts with you for freight forwarding, systems traffic, supply chain management and traction. As a result of cooperation and freight agreements with other Europe railway companies, we pool flows of goods and offer the best solution and favourable conditions. You can follow the data related to your railway shipments through our IT interfaces and our consignment tracking system at any time.
Truck services are almost unbeatable for the last mile. Trucks can transport goods to almost any place in the world in contrast with ships, which need a connection to the sea or an inland waterway, or rail services, where the network of tracks is not as dense as roads. But it is more cost-effective to use sea-going or inland waterway vessels or railway wagons for long-distance services, bulk commodities or particularly large and heavy items. Planes are the number one exports or imports, which have to be handled particularly fast over large distances. It is our aim to plan the transport chains in such a way that the relevant strengths of the individual modes of transport are used to the best possible degree along the individual sections of the route.
The establishment of intermodal traffic, a variation of multi-modal transport services, where logistics chains are also organised using different means of transport, but the loading unit always remains the same, is closely linked with the success story of containers. After all, the standardisation of the cargo carrier makes it easier to tranship the items between the individual means of transport. The efficiency of intermodal traffic rises without having to change the loading unit and thereby increase time and costs.
