What matters

A global producer of household appliances relies on absolutely reliable logistics solutions and thus on our logistics competence. What’s important for the customer: A relaxed approach and just-in-time supply control.

Almost all leading manufacturers of household appliances use the rail logistics services of the Rail Cargo Group as part of their logistics chain. One such company is BSH Hausgeräte GmbH, the world’s number two in the household appliance industry. BSH attaches particular importance to reliability and cooperation based on partnership. That is why we also handle internal transports for Bosch Siemens household appliances. Two trains per week are operated between Germany and Turkey. From the BSH plant in Giengen, Germany, we travel through Austria, Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria until our train reaches its destination at the BSH plant in Çerkezköy, Turkey, 2,000 kilometres later. Loaded up again, we also return to Germany twice a week. A total of 350 45-foot containers are available for the entire transport process. 144 containers are regularly in rotation, the remaining containers are being loaded or unloaded. In addition, a replacement set of 18 container wagons in Turkey and four container wagons in Germany are available at any time in the event of breakdowns. What’s more, the containers loaded with mixed household appliances or spare parts are secured with special locks. This gives our customers the certainty that the sensitive and high-quality goods arrive at their destination not only on time and reliably but also in absolute safety. The just-in-time supply control not only fulfilled the customer promise but also confirmed our logistics competence and relaxed approach beyond measure.
