binderholz invests in climate-friendly cargo transport for a sustainable future by moving transports from the road to rail. Round timber and several solid wood products are delivered to and from our plants via rail to reduce a maximum number of truck journeys and stress on the roads, in turn sustainably saving significant amounts of CO2.
We have been working with our logistics partner DB Cargo Logistics for many years now. Together, we have implemented several maximally green logistics concepts. Among others, binderholz CLT BBS is transported to France and Scandinavia in single cars, railway connections are being activated in Wilhelmsglück and Burgbernheim and sustainable reloading concepts to and from the Brake sea port are being implemented.
Generally speaking, most of our sites have railway connection. Round timber is, for instance, transported from Jenbach to the Fügen sawmill by train and sawn timber as well as pallets the other way. From Jenbach, up to 32.5 m long glulam elements are then directly loaded onto railway cars at the plant's own tracks. Our Hallein site also has its own railway connection, from which binderholz CLT BBS reaches construction projects all over Europe. For Sweden's largest multi-storey car park made from wood, for instance, the required supports, columns and ceiling elements were delivered from our plants directly to Malmö. The material used on a large school house in Norway was also transported by train.
