El Logistics group Liquid bulk cargoes

Since such cargoes do not have their own tare/packaging, liquid bulk cargoes are delivered by tanks. A special tank container for liquid bulk cargo is used to transport by rail not only various types of bulk products, but also hazardous liquid substances and gas under pressure. Moreover, for example, gas tanks (tank containers for gas) are used only for these purposes. Accordingly, storage is also carried out in special tanks.

El Logistics group Bulk cargo

When transporting bulk cargo, there is no need to worry about climate changes, as with tared-packaged cargo. However, this is not their main distinctive feature. When loading bulk cargoes, no accounting of places is made. That is, they are transported in bulk using halfwagons and freight platforms for this.

El Logistics group Bulk cargoes

Bulk cargo types include the types of cargo transported by bulk, i.e. . These types include grain, mineral fertilizers and cement. However, unlike bulk, they are adversely affected by precipitation. For transportation are used wagons for bulk cargo, which is a hopper wagon (grain carrier) or a covered wagon.

What rail transportation tariffs depend on
The type of goods

And yet, its characteristics, including gross weight and special properties, are of great importance. This also includes the classification of goods according to the level of danger.

Number and type of rolling stock wagons required for transportation (platforms, halfwagons, covered wagons, cisterns). The rules of product packaging should also be considered.

The itinerary, i.e, from which and to which country the movement is carried out, the presence of transshipment points. Of course, all of this is calculated, complying with transportation rules.

Delivery time and, as a result, the speed of the train. If high speed is required, it leads to a rise in price.

By carrying out international rail transportation, EL LOGISTICS GROUP guarantees you both the security of the transaction and the quality of services at a reasonable cost.
