Unsere Mission

This is how CargoBeamer works

  • 01. Arrival

    The truck loaded with a semi-trailer arrives at the terminal and places it in one of the parking lots. Any type of semi-trailer can be loaded by CargoBeamer.

  • 02. No waiting time

    Truck and driver can leave the terminal immediately or take a new semi-trailer with them. There are no waiting times at CargoBeamer.

  • 03. Preloading

    The semi-trailer is placed onto a waiting loading basket next to the railway track by a terminal vehicle.

  • 04. Loading and unloading

    As soon as the train has arrived, loading and unloading of all semi-trailers happens automatically and simultaneously. This loading and unloading procedure for an entire train only takes 20 minutes.

  • 05. Departure

    A completely reloaded train can now depart again. CargoBeamer thereby takes over the long haul portion of the transport by rail and is faster, more efficient, and environmentally friendly.
