Rail freight is becoming more and more popular as there are many advantages of rail freight, which are not found in road transport.
On this page we visualize and simplify specific benefits of rail transport.
Advantages of rail freight:
- Rail freight is a safe, efficient and environmentally friendly transport solution
- Far less CO2 emissions and thus better environmental profile
- High capacity gives room for more items
- Avoid traffic and driving bans and have your goods delivered in time
- Stable departure and arrival times
- High departure frequency makes the solution flexible for your shipments
Rail freight - a sustainable transport solution
When choosing our rail freight, you will have a sustainable transport solution. Rail freight has some unique environmental advantages, as it reduces CO2 emissions with up to in some cases 80 % compared to conventional road transport. By using rail freight you will leave a smaller carbon foot print and can better your company's CSR profile. Freight by rail helps reducing the heavy traffic on the roads and simultaneously also the load on the road network.
Greater loading capacity with rail freight
When transporting by train you will have the opportunity of having a higher loading capacity than by traditional road transport. This means that we are able to load more of your goods in each trailer. Here we can load up to 30 tonnes on curtain trailers and 28 tonnes on reefers vs. 24,5- and 22,5 on the road.
Combine rail freight and road transport for greater flexibility
It can be an advantage to combine rail freight and road transport to achieve an even higher flexibility. With trucks we can deliver and pick up your goods directly at your door. We arrange the best solution according to your specific need.
It is easy to book and in case of problems/delays we are notified.
Clear departures make it easy to see when to expect our goods will be delivered.
The staff are always friendly, happy and accommodating upon inquiries, which makes you in a good mood when talking to them.
We have tried other freight forwarders but has always returned to Lauritzen.
As we are located in the same city, Lauritzen has always been good at paying us a visit, if something has been missing, which has also contributed to very good relationships among the companies.
If something goes wrong, against expectations, Lauritzen quickly report this. And in case we need goods in a hurry they also find a solution to this. All information is passed on. That means a lot to us.
In addition, Lauritzen transport what we have to Spain, Norway and Sweden.
To us, Lauritzen is not a supplier but a partner.
For us at Garant Holstebro it is all about an end product of the highest quality which also means delivery of our products.
The cooperation that I have personally had with Lauritzen for many years now can only be described as excellent.
I send orders every week and all orders are handled professional. Each request is answered immediately and each case at the concerned factory is handled thoroughly so we always have our goods loaded in time, which means that we can comply with all our deliveries.
In case of accident, I receive an email or a call from the office immediately, so I can always give our customers a message about a possible change of delivery time.
I have to say that I rarely experience such a complete workflow as the staff perform at Lauritzen.
Incredible nice people to talk to and write with. I could mention some names, but I am sure they know who they are, and I am certain that all at Lauritzen performs equal.
When there occasionally are accidents by train, which Lauritzen are not an influencer on, they are good at informing of possible obstacles. Mean while they are also good at remembering our orders and always asking if other orders is to be transported back home. We are very satisfied with the cooperation.
Vi sætter endvidere pris på at det, så vidt muligt, er de samme chaufføre, der kommer ud til os igen og igen.
Sammenfattet ser vi at den service vi var vant til fra Lauritzen fra før, stadig er den samme. chaufførerne gør som de bliver bedt om / i overensstemmelse med vores HMS-krav, så vi er yderst tilfredse med opstarten.
Lauritzen kan håndtere utrolig mange transporter på kort tid, nogle gange op til 26 full loads på en uge, endda omkring sommerferie tid. Det sætter vi stor pris på.
Lauritzen yder os en rigtig god service, med det rigtige opsæt af forskellige trailerstørrelser mv. samt pris.
Det bedste er, at vi har fast kontaktperson, som håndterer alle vores transporter. Det er en kæmpe fordel.
Vi kender hinanden og ved hvad der er vigtigt i samarbejdet. Derved undgår vi en masse mulige misforståelser, og det giver ro i maven at man ved, der er nogen der har styr på det, og man føler arbejder for os.
