CargoBeamer Terminals

At CargoBeamer terminals, intermodal transport trains are loaded and unloaded simultaneously. Transshipment is horizontal, fully automated and takes only 20 minutes for an entire train. Thanks to our innovative and efficient terminal technology, tractor and driver do not have to be present when the train arrives and can collect the semi-trailers and provide new ones independently any time.

Flexible and space-saving

The design of a CargoBeamer terminal can be flexibly adapted to local conditions. Single or double-sided handling on one or more loading lanes in each case - possibilities are unlimited.

Turnaround in 20 minutes

Complete loading and unloading of an entire train takes only 20 minutes. After a short safety check, the train can depart again right away.

More efficient than the competition

Thanks to the fast turnaround within a few minutes, the throughput rate of a CargoBeamer terminal is two to five times higher than that of a conventional terminal.

Easy to expand

The handling modules are made of precast concrete parts and can be installed in the terminal within a short time. Later expansion of the terminal is already provided for during the planning phase and can then be implemented quickly and cost-effectively.

More efficient use of drivers and trucks

Semi-trailers can be delivered or picked up by drivers without the train having to be present at the terminal. This way, we provide a system where trucks can concentrate on local traffic and, after delivering one semi-trailer, take on another one immediately.

Quiet, fast and fully automated

Trains are loaded and unloaded fully automatically and without noise emissions. Additional shunting vehicles are no mandatory requirement. The unloaded semitrailers can be taken along by the trucks immediately or any time later.

Fast gauge changes when crossing the border

When transporting rail cargo across the Russian or Spanish border, the gauge change used to take two to three days, approximately. With CargoBeamer's terminal technology, this happens in less than an hour.

On-site service

At certain terminals we take over the unloading and shunting process for you. In that case the tractor units and drivers only have to provide the semi-trailers or take along the waiting ones. In addition, CargoBeamer takes care of the safety inspection of the departing trains.
