MOBILER makes it happen

“Rail over road” is RCG´s motto! Thus, we support a railway campaigning project and show how container transports can be handled without a terminal – our in-house technology makes it possible.

With the goal of even faster and more effective HGV transport of container goods from factory to train, Fritsch, Chiari & Partner (FCP) is currently pursuing the project “Combi Coop II” aimed at promoting Combined Transports which can operate without the need for a terminal. Within the Southern Burgenland region, the project’s first test transport was completed with the technically sophisticated MOBILER system of the RCG.

For this project the deployment of the well-established MOBILER happened for the waste disposal company Stipits in Rechnitz/Burgenland and started at the railway station in Oberwart/Burgenland:

Thanks to the special container movement system, MOBILER-containers can be transferred between HGV and railway wagons quickly, without fuss and almost anywhere – by a single individual, without needing any external assistance or terminal equipment, such as cranes. A railway station like in Oberwart with an appropriate loading siding and team track is sufficient:

After driving for a short distance from Oberwart to the location of the waste disposal company, the MOBILER-containers were loaded with waste paper and cardboard boxes:

Further test transports are planned using MOBILER technology. Additionally, the fast and versatile container movement system of RCG should in future continue to be used in the region, as the test transport impressively demonstrated how companies can benefit from additional capabilities regarding the transportation of goods by rail through efficient container handling. Because the market-oriented project aims specifically at showing companies without their own rail connection the benefits that are associated with Combined Transport by rail in terms of cost, transport and environmental impact. The project makes an active contribution to the railway campaign in this area, particularly regarding the shifting of goods transports from road to rail, and can act as a model for other regions.
