Cleaning up in Austria and Germany

[ December 20, 2021   //   ]

Austrian transport and logistics provider Gebrüder Weiss has been delivering detergents and cleaning agents manufactured in Kruševac, Serbia by rail to destinations along the Vienna-Düsseldorf line for consumer products company Henkel. It circumvents the current shortage of truck capacity and cuts emissions by up to 70% while matching the delivery times of road transport. The system uses use the same trailers that had previously been used for the road operation.
