Transport of bulk material

Freightliner has great experience in aggregates transportation.

We are cooperating with biggest quarry in the East of Germany and we have all the necessary knowledge about the local unloading conditions at stations across Germany.

Our rolling stock is designed for fast and efficient transport of heaviest trains possible. We are able to carry up to 3100 net tonnes of bulk material on one train (single locomotive, 45 wagons), assuming there are no special restrictions as far as infrastructure is concerned.

We were actively involved in designing innovative Eamnoss wagons which allow us to optimise the weight of the carried goods. Thanks to some construction changes, our trains can carry up to 12.5% goods on one train.

In addition, our Class 66 locomotives are permitted to work on sidings and terminals which allow us to perform all the operations with single locomotive.

Bulk material transports for the S3 road construction in Poland

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.
