To transport an elephant by railways – not a problem

AB „Lietuvos geležinkeliai“ launches new service – from now it will be possible to carry non-standard sizes, oversized, heavy cargo. The company will make schemes for this type of cargo loading and fixing in railways rolling stock. These cargo will be transported not only in Lithuania but also in Europe, CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) and Baltic states.
According to „Lietuvos geležinkeliai“ Freight Forwarding Department „LG ekspedicija“ director Rima Terminaitė, a comprehensive range of services, supplemented by new customer-requested services, will let us to compete in the freight forwarding market, loading and fixing them in way the rules do not provide.
„We are constantly reacting to changes in the market, looking for new opportunities and trying to take into consideration even the most capricious customers requirements. It makes our company a leader in logistics among customers in Lithuania and abroad. At this time, apparently, there is no way of transportation, we could not offer to them“, – said R. Terminaitė.
Oversized freight transportation – specific service, that demands special knowledge. Since 2009, „Lietuvos geležinkeliai“ does not provide services related to the preparation of schemes for freight loading and fixing in rolling stock, because there was no employee, to whom the State Railway Inspection would be granted such a right. Currently, such an employee is working in the company, he has passed all the required exams and received a certificate granting the right to prepare those schemes.
