Thank you to our train drivers, who have got 10,000 H.P. up their sleeves for moving thousands of tonnes of goods. Our extensive service portfolio and unique fleet of traction vehicles make for quite a spectrum of responsibilities. They not only transport freight trains safely and punctually from A to B, for instance; they also deal with shunting, carry out vehicle and safety inspections and and make preparations for the journeys.
Thank you to our wagon inspectors, who are in charge of the operational safety of our vehicles. After all, reliable rail freight transport depends on wagons that are safe. This makes the operational safety of railway vehicles just as important as that of your own car. Our wagon inspectors check the gears, carry out brake tests, minor repairs and manual work on the railway vehicles and document their activities. They assess the loading safety, label damaged wagons, make a record of any damage and inform the railway vehicle’s owner.
Thank you to our terminal staff, who make sure that freight transport services keep running. The safe transloading of the units lies in their hands. They are the vital link between the railways and other modes of transport at the terminals. Container terminals represent the interface for rail freight transport. Here, the loading units are transferred between two or more transport carriers. The Rail Cargo Group moves 1.6 million intermodal transport units every single year.
Thank you to all our logistics experts, who organise everything that is required to make the transportation of industrial goods possible. As the interface between us and our customers, they are the ones taking care of all of the services that affect them. Thank you to our dispatchers, who take care of each and every transport request and develop creative solutions for solving complex issues. After all, this is the key skill of every dispatcher.
Thank you to our dispatchers, who organise everything needed to make the transportation of goods possible. They coordinate how goods are distributed as well as vehicle utilization; they create the transport documentation and all the related services, such as advising customers upon choosing the most appropriate means of transport.
And a massive thank you to all the rest of our 8,502 logistics experts from 34 nations in our 12 international subsidiaries. Thank you for the great job you’re doing.
