New quantities for Marcegaglia Carbon Steel

ÖBB Rail Cargo Group (RCG) is handling additional tens of thousands of tons per year for Marcegaglia Carbon Steel as part of a new order.

Marcegaglia Carbon Steel, a long-standing customer of RCG, is one of the largest steel processors in Italy, offering a wide range of steel products. On top of the quantities the RCG was already handling, a new order has now been commissioned: every week, the RCG now runs a block train of pallets loaded with steel strip – for the manufacture of folding and hinge systems – from the terminal in Piadena, near Cremona, through the Brenner Pass to the Gebrüder Weiss terminal in Wolfurt. The recipient of the consignment is the BLUM factory in the Vorarlberg region. 

End-to-end from a single source

RCG is responsible for coordinating the entire logistics solution, including first and last mile and the main leg of the rail journey through Italy and Austria using its own traction. What makes this transport special is that the whole transport is completed within a single day. The new order is a huge step forward in terms of sustainability, as the transport was previously carried out exclusively by truck.
