2. Specialized handling in ports and railway transport
Railway transport of oversized loads requires comprehensive technical knowledge and highly developed planning and realisation abilities on the hauler’s side.
Railway transport of oversized loads
ESA logistika is an expert in proposing methods of transport and supporting activities that contribute to the smooth functioning of the whole logistic operation. The company can also provide services related to handling in the destination port.
As an example, ESA logistika managed successful railway transport within the Kozienice project. All loads transported by railway were extremely sensitive and highly important for the power plant. Any damage or delay would threaten the whole project of the power plant’s modernization. This fact could be seen in the increased costs of the operation planning and ensuring the full security of the transported technology.
Load preparation to railway transport.
The key preparatory activities coordinated by the ESA logistika’s team related to loading the oversized load on a special railway carriage were as follows:
- removal of slides and other grippings used for naval transport,
- unmounting of protective covers for naval transport, mounting the protective covers for transport in a railway carriage; cleaning, applying silicon and greasing bolts.
All the above-mentioned measures enabled the loading and safe delivery of the load to the destination in accordance with the approved time schedule.
