A million tons of cargo outside the Czech roads

In May of this year, the million ton mark of goods transported by rail between Vamberk, specifically the ESAB production plant, and the logistics center of DB Schenker in Pardubice was reached. Transports for the customer DB Schenker are provided by regular trains, which carry 8 to 10 wagons loaded with welding material every day. It is about 2,300 tons of material per week.

Thanks to the 9 years of cooperation, the East Bohemian roads were spared driving of 44 500 trucks, which would be, by way of illustration, an 800 km long line of cars. CO2 emissions saving can be estimated at 1 650 tonnes. On the occasion of the millionth tonne, a ceremonial event took place in Pardubice, attended by the Chairman of the Board of Directors at ČD Cargo Ivan Bednárik.
