The unique CargoBeamer Technology

CargoBeamer means innovative and environmentally friendly solutions for intermodal transport. Thanks to its unique technology, the company can easily transfer all types of semi-trailers from road to rail and transport them over long distances. The transfer is automated, fast and with no waiting times for the transport companies - an entire intermodal train can be loaded and unloaded simultaneously in just 20 minutes.

How the transfer works

The truck loaded with a semi-trailer arrives at the terminal. Here, the semi-trailer is placed in one of the parking lots. From here is is picked up by a terminal vehicle which places placed the semi-trailer in a loading basket next to the railway tracks.

The truck can leave the terminal immediately without having to wait for the train. Without delay, it can switch to a new transport job or take along a semi-trailer that has already arrived at the terminal. Waiting times are virtually non-existent, instead tractor units are utilized more effectively and transport companies increase their productivity.

As soon as the train has arrived, all semi-trailers are transferred automatically and with the simple push of a button. It takes CargoBeamer just 20 minutes to unload 36 semi-trailers from an intermodal train and load the same number at the same time. Both steps simply happen simultaneously. By comparison, a conventional crane terminal needs around three to four hours to handle such a train.

After a brief safety check, the fully transferred train is ready to depart for its next destination - without any tractor units or drivers, but always environmentally friendly and without traffic jams.
