The rail and rolling stock network in North America is truly envied around the world.
Spanning a total length of over 300,000 kilometres (or 185,000 miles) in the USA and Canada, it
is renowned to be the largest, safest and most cost-efficient rail system globally. Although mature in terms of suppliers and service providers, the North American market relies heavily on technology and equipment designed and manufactured all over the world – such as communications-based train control (CBTC) systems, high-speed rolling stock and infrastructure supplies like tunnel boring machines and modular rail sections.
deugro has positioned itself as a market leader in logistics within the rail and rolling stock market around the world and especially in North America, with dedicated rolling stock teams in various locations like Texas, Pennsylvania and Florida in the USA as well as Toronto and Calgary in Canada. These teams are always on hand to provide a full array of supply chain support – from general freight forwarding and customs and compliance to heavy and over-dimensional cargo handling as well as optimised project logistics planning.
deugro’s experience speaks for itself: annually, deugro handles the transportation of over 1,500 items of rolling stock from around the world into and around the North American market, with major rail, rolling stock and infrastructure projects having been successfully delivered for some of the largest rolling stock manufacturers from Europe and Asia.
One of these projects, which deugro is currently delivering for a major European rolling stock manufacturer, is the REM Project in Canada. deugro is responsible for the collection, transportation and delivery of over 200 metro cars from the manufacturing facility in India to the project site in Canada. This has included the commissioning of specialised transport equipment to transport these metro cars safely and efficiently from the port of arrival in New York to the rails in Montreal.
