The aim is to constantly improve the company’s ecological footprint. Accordingly, DRÄXLMAIER Group’s transport logistics has focused on intermodal transport.
Intermodal, or combined, transport is the term used to describe the use of different modes of transport over one chain of transportation. Here, the transportation or loading unit is forwarded using various means of transport. Common loading units for this practice are containers or swap bodies as well as semi-trailers that are shipped by rail as piggyback transport. This allows the most favourable characteristics of each mode of transport to be fully utilised.
DRÄXLMAIER exploits the benefits of a number of types of transport, for example when shipping to Asia. Instead of using trucks, goods are transported across Germany to a port in the north of the country by rail. From there, the loading unit is transported on its onward journey to Asia by ship. On arrival in Asia, DRÄXLMAIER uses CNG trucks to perform transportation from the port to the factory.
