We transport all kinds of cargo by rail to guarantee a fast and trouble-free delivery. Our extensive network of associates helps us to reach any place in the world by rail.
We use rail transport for your shipment whenever it offers a more favourable cost and/or speed of service. At Bilogistik we always offer optimised logistics solutions and the railway is a great option for many kinds of freight, particularly when connected with other means of transport as part of a multimodal logistics service.
Our rail freight transport service includes placing containers or semi-trailers on board the train, combined with our expertise in handling freight for its rail transport, including dangerous goods.
We use rail transport for our international shipments whenever possible. Rail freight transport is a forward-looking initiative in the international logistics scenario, and particularly on the European continent with its high-quality rail corridors for freight carriage. This is a competitive and clean means of transport which has enormous potential for growth, combined with use of the already existing rail network.
Not only is international rail transport fast because of train speed, but the necessary export formalities too are much simpler to complete than they are for other means of transport.
Dangerous goods are considered to be those whose transport is only authorised in certain conditions, when a number of safety requirements or recommendations are in place. Here rail freight is regulated by the RID, the International Regulation on the Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Rail, issued by the European Union.
Among the goods considered dangerous for rail transport are explosive and flammable goods, gases and flammable liquids, and spontaneously combustible, toxic, infectious, corrosive and radioactive materials. The packaging and stowage of these kinds of substances in wagons or tanks must follow a series of additional procedures to guarantee the safety of both people and the environment.
We, the companies who transport dangerous goods, are obliged by law to have safety advisors to oversee these aspects. That’s the guarantee offered by consolidated companies in the sector, like Bilogistik, always a step ahead of regulations when it comes to safety.
