Transporting ethanol for disinfectant production
In cooperation with our sister company ITL and the forwarding company TankMatch Rail Hamburg, we transported 1,000 tons of ethanol in 18 wagons from the Port of Rotterdam to Pleszew station in Poland.
The ethanol is urgently needed for the production of disinfectants, as Poland is facing a shortage caused by high levels of demand during the coronavirus outbreak.
Rail is much more environmentally friendly than road transport, requires less personnel for the quantity of goods transported, and means cross-border operation could be implemented quickly.
"If train and shunting services, wagons and infrastructure are optimally co-ordinated, the railway can fully exploit its strengths and get considerable transport volume off the road", said Jérôme Méline, Managing Director of Captrain Deutschland.
