Our ability to deliver sleepers to the construction site and to transport away the old sleepers to be disposed of is an important cost-reducing option for our clients. By linking supply and disposal, we create advantages which are relevant for construction projects.


  • Reduced shunting costs
  • Minimising empty trips
  • More efficient utilisation of rail wagon capacity
  • Reduced risk of construction site stoppages
