RAIL FREIGHT

The optimal ratio of "price-speed" in the transportation of large quantities of cargoes, oversized cargo and strictly defined by the customer delivery dates. Ideal for use on non-urgent inland routes.

Geography of railway transportation "DARTS Logistic" - countries of Eastern and Western Europe, Baltic States, CIS, China.

Types of goods that are profitable to transport by rail:

1)      commodity-piece-covered cars or containers are used, the method of loading – manual or mechanical;

2)      oversized and heavy – loaded into open wagons, wagons - conveyors (chain, platform, platform, etc.), onto platforms using cranes;

3)      bulk goods -transported in conventional gondola cars or using specialized rolling stock (depends on the nature of the cargo and safety requirements);

4)      goods requiring compliance with a certain temperature regime during transportation (thermos wagons, refrigerated wagons, ice wagons or other special isothermal wagons for transportation of live fish, milk or wine);

5)      liquid, including dangerous-in tanks with observance of safety rules.

Advantages of rail freight:

  1. high load capacity – one platform is able to withstand a weight of up to 80-100 tons, which is equivalent to several loaded containers;
  2. low cost of transportation;
  3. branching of the railway network;
  4. safe transportation;
  5. we always have special offers for individual shipments;
  6. fast customs clearance and lack of queues at border crossings;
  7. fast integration into the multimodal transportation scheme;
  8. strict schedule of departure and arrival of trains.

What affects the cost of rail transportation?

1)      type of cargo-for example, transportation of dangerous goods is associated with great risks, which inevitably affects the price;

2)      volume and dimensions-these parameters affect the choice of the type of truck (indoor, hopper refrigerator, etc.)

3)      route-it is about the presence of direct communication, the number of points of cargo handling on the way, restrictions on the passage of certain goods through checkpoints, etc.

4)      the scope of additional services under the contract – loading/unloading, registration of accompanying documents for goods, insurance, customs Declaration, etc.

5)      urgency of delivery and availability of special conditions;

6)      the need to store goods in intermediate warehouses;

7)      the distance;

8)      possibility of transportation of goods as part of groupage cargo
