Heavy Haul Freight
Freight and heavy haul transport from mine to port
SYSTRA Scott Lister works on all types of freight projects, from new lines (design and construction, coordination and supervision of work including logistics hubs) through to existing lines (increase in capacity, reduction in operating costs, improved security, line upgrades and electrification). We have supported major initiatives with mine owners to increase efficiency and make improvements through the use of autonomous control systems on the heavy-haul railway.
Design and implementation are not our only concern, our focus will always be on the fundamental end purpose, to transport freight and commodities and to find a global approach to optimise all the links in the logistics chain. Just as logistics both before and after transport are crucial, only experts with an in-depth knowledge of both the commodities sector and rail engineering are able to minutely adjust infrastructure design to requirements and find the right parameters to reduce costs.
