Bohnet Delivers 73 Heavy Components For New Paper Mill In Germany

For the new paper mill in Sandersdorf-Brehna, Germany, Project Logistics Alliance partner Bohnet has successfully delivered 73 large and heavy components from various European countries such as Austria, Spain, Poland, Czech Republic, and Switzerland in just 7 months. The biggest challenge was the parts with an extraordinary height that could not be transported by road. Consequently, various large parts had to be brought from Heidenheim to Sandersdorf-Brehna in combined multimodal transport.

The partial transports went from Heidenheim, Germany to the inland port in Heilbronn, where the cargo was transloaded onto a barge by a mobile crane. With several inland navigation vessels, the journey took about 14 days to the inland port in Aken and later, due to low water, to the inland port in Haldensleben. After arrival, the components were transloaded with a stationary crane in Aken and a crawler crane from the barge to a lowbed truck.

Thanks to this extra handling, the on-carriage could be carried out again with Bohnet vehicles. Due to the height combined with the over-width, the transports were accompanied by energy suppliers, telecom, and or train employees. In addition, lifting trucks and workshop wagons, as well as police escorts and BF4 vehicles, had to be commissioned for the transport.
