“The shipper books a complete service. This gives him the entire transport chain from a single source, which includes the pre-carriage, container stuffing, main leg and delivery, including documentation,” explains Björn Becker, who is responsible for the Port Logistics Division at HSL. A particular strength of the transport concept is its flexibility.
“Our initial experience has shown that we can implement the preliminary run, including stuffing, within a week. The transport time on the Silk Road is 18 to 22 days. With currently 14 round trips a week, there is plenty of capacity available,” Becker knows.
A separate area is being set up for container stuffing at the new HSL steel terminal in Duisburg (www.steel-warehouse.com), which is currently under construction. This includes a truck yard with six ramps for fast handling including stuffing and stripping of containers, including palletised goods. HSL has a high level of expertise in the loading of steel coils with very high unit weights and the load securing of high-value industrial goods.
“We see a growing market in the liner services between Duisburg and the terminals in China with a great need to stuff containers professionally and safely. This is where we want to contribute with our know-how and capacities,” says Becker. Especially for time-critical goods and goods with a high capital commitment, the faster overland route is an ecological and reliable alternative.
