Combined transports already today provide the best long-distance option for fossil free door-to-door transports, using fossil free vehicles. By improving the availability and competitiveness of Combined Transports we aim to provide a better option to long distance road transport and to be a catalyst for an accelerated shift to sustainable long-distance transportation over land.
At the core of TRUCTRIC’s transshipment technology is our innovative RoRo loading concept, which is based on horizonal loading of semi-trailers directly onto flat railway wagons from the side thereof, using assisted precision driving. The loading is performed by a tractor pushing the trailer from an elevated platform beside the railway wagon. A driving assistance system secures correct positioning of the trailer during the loading procedure based on input from connected position sensors. The railway wagon is arranged with a flat loading area, for receiving the trailer and is further equipped to support and secure the trailer during loading and transport.
