Intensive development of the motorway network created high demand for bulk material in Western Poland. Since November 2007, Freightliner delivered aggregates from Koschenberg's quarry (Germany) to a number of terminals along the construction of the S3 motorway.
We were running two laden trains everyday. Most of the time, there were 6 sets of 44 wagons involved in the process. Each set carried 2660 net tons, which was an unprecedented amount for cross-border transport.
With its sensible and efficient planning, Freightliner could deliver 80 000 tonnes per month. The transportations had to be backed up by quick unloading - we were emptying 88 wagons per day on a regular basis. During this contract, Freightliner gained extremely valuable experience and demonstrated trustworthiness and reliability as a supplier for large construction. We developed successful procedures which we use in cross-border transport since then.
