Key logistic points:
The logistical undertaking entailed door-to door deliveries of seven locomotives. Execution of the project required recourse to three modes of transport: inland waterways, sea and road. The locomotives, collected from the sender’s factory were delivered to a river port. The next stage saw the cargo sail over inland waterways to a port where it was reloaded onto an ocean going vessel. Once the sea leg of the journey was complete, the locomotives were hauled on specialist semi-trailers to their destination in Brazil.
