Simplextrans transports cargo from Europe utilizing the following logistic means:
- Transporting by trucks from the exporter’s warehouse with transshipment to CIS rail wagons – in this case the trucks are loaded at the shipper’s warehouse from Europe, the cargo is transported by trucks to the rail terminal at the border where it is transshipped to CIS (MPS/Private) rail wagon. Also here the transportation documentation is finalized.
- The direct loading to CIS (MPS) rail wagon in the European countries – on the basis of our agreement with the Moldavian, Ukrainian and Byelorussian Railways Administrations, we have the possibility of insuring the loading in European countries (Romania, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia) the CIS rail wagons. In this case the loading is done directly in CIS train cars without later transshipment which decreases the risk of deteriorating the cargo during transport. As is the case, often this is done when a wide gauge rail line exists. When it does not, the transshipment is done of narrow gauge rail wagons to which 2 protection-wagons are attached to make the connection between the CIS rail wagons and the European ones. This leads to an increase of the transportation costs.
- Transporting in European rail wagons with transshipment in CIS rail wagons – in Europe the transporter loads the cargo in European train cars that will get to the CIS station where, utilizing special tools (lifts, cranes) or by hand, the cargo is transshipped to CIS (MPS) wagons.
- Transporting the cargo in private (bought) containers – the cargo is transported in the shipper’s containers or in containers bought by us at the request of the shipper. In this case, there is no more need to transship the cargo. At the customer’s request, we can aid with selling the container at the destination station in order to return some of the expenses and thus reduce the final cost of transportation.
- Multimodal transportations maritime container – rail container/wagon or truck – loading is done directly at the exporter’s warehouse in a line container which is then shipped to the harbor and ends up on the boat in the CIS port. Here, the cargo is offloaded to a 20” / 40” rail container or wagon or is transported by lorry towards the final destination.
- Transporting with naval ships from EU countries to ports in the Ukraine. Russia, Georgia or the Baltic countries with transshipment in rail wagons or trucks – this solution is used when a large quantity of shipment exists. This is an optimal solution both for time and price to transport large quantities of cargo.
