The partners TRANSA Spedition, Rhenus Cuxport and DFDS have repeatedly ensured the smooth supply of a construction site in England with precast concrete parts from the Czech Republic via the RailRo-Cargo network. As a follow-up project to the transports already carried out in the summer of 2021, 120 flatracks with precast concrete parts have again been shipped to England via Cuxhaven since the middle of this year.
Delivery reliability has high priority
The precast concrete parts of the joint customer GOLDBECK were loaded at short intervals onto flats provided by the consignor and transported from the shipping point in Skovice (CZ) to Cuxhaven by rail. In the port of Cuxhaven, the special flats were then reloaded directly from railway wagons onto Mafi roll trailers. Subsequently, they were shipped from Cuxhaven to Immingham by RoRo. Within the framework of the partnership, particular attention was paid to the issues of import customs clearance, delivery to the construction site in England, as well as the return of the empty flats to the consignor. The overall coordination and monitoring of the supply chain was in the hands of TRANSA-Spedition, which meant that the customer benefited from a complete solution.
Felix Bieling, business economist, GOLDBECK International GmbH: "Our project business is determined by very flexible and timely framework conditions and accordingly requires business partners who can meet these. The top priority is to ensure the safe transport of our material and on-time delivery to the construction site. With the team consisting of TRANSA Spedition, DFDS and Rhenus Cuxport, we are glad to have found partners who can meet these requirements."
Kay-Uwe Müller-Gericke, Key Account Manager of TRANSA Spedition: "Once again, we have jointly succeeded in convincing our long-standing customer of the concept of unaccompanied transport by rail and sea and its advantages. In addition to timely delivery to the construction site, delivery reliability also played a key role in the choice of logistics concept."
Best framework conditions for project goods
Oliver Fuhljahn, Key Account Manager at Rhenus Cuxport: "The smooth and direct handling of high-quality goods and also bulk general cargo fulfils a considerable quality and also productivity requirement, which we implement here on site together with our partners."
Branch manager of DFDS in Cuxhaven Marcus Braue adds: "With the existing frequency of six weekly departures between Cuxhaven and Immingham, we also offer very good conditions for precise delivery to the construction site in the time-sensitive project business. Meanwhile, we are once again in the bidding stage for new projects and are already looking forward to implementing them as part of the successful partnership with Rhenus Cuxport and TRANSA Spedition."
