Wood transport in Austria

Last week, ČD Cargo started transports of wood for sawmill in Retz, Austria, on its own license - by a locomotive and by a driver of ČD Cargo. The first consignment transported this way was a complete train made up of Sggmrrs wagons with GigaWood superstructures, loaded on 11 March 2020 in Příbram. The next complete train departed from this station on 20 March and others will follow.

Transport of this wood has so far been realized by road. One complete train thus saves 34 trucks journeys. In the current crisis situation, we have not only helped our roads but, above all, simplified and accelerated the cross-border transport of goods to Austria.

The wagons are also fully employed in the opposite direction by wood from the Znojmo area to the paper mill in Štětí.
