In many cases when oversized and heavyweight cargo should be transported over long distances rail freight is often more convenient than transportation by trucking.
For years “Beluga Projects Logistic” has successfully used all the advantages of rail freight for our projects including multimodal transportation.
If cargo placed on open rolling stock exceeds loading size limits, such cargo is considered oversized. It can be various turbines, generators and their parts, transformers, reactors, frames and supports.
Possibility of transportation via rail road depends on cargo size and freight car loading capacity. When it is not possible to use regular wagons, semi wagons or platforms, transporter wagons are used.
Rail transporters by producers operating in Russia and CIS countries are divided in different types: platform, header, pothole, jointed, adhered. Transporter loading capacities vary from 55 T (four-axle) to 500T (thirty two-axle), with a number of wheel pairs: 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 16, 20, 28, 32.
It allows over company to perform transportation of various oversized and heavyweight cargo securely and just in time.
