Kopf + Lübben Cargo Services moves a decommissioned rail wagon to its final destination at a newly planned industrial estate

The wagon which had a weight of 16.5 T and dimensions of 1402 x 270 x 401 cm required several special equipment for loading and unloading

Kopf + Lübben Cargo Services, a Coop member in Bremen, Hamburg, and Frankfurt, Germany, has recently carried out the special transport of a decommissioned wagon in Bremen. One of their clients, a project development company from Bremen, recently purchased a decommissioned rail wagon from Deutsche Bahn for a newly planned industrial estate. A former railway station site is being brought to new life as a part of the project and therefore an old wagon will be an eye-catching installation.

COOP_Kopf + Lübben Cargo Services transports a decommissioned wagon in Bremen.

The wagon was loaded simultaneously with two mobile truck cranes onto a semi low-loader. In order to place the wagon safely on the trailer, specially-made wheelset pads had to be obtained. For the unloading at the destination, a special trackbed was created on which the wagon was unloaded with a semi low-loader and two simultaneously operating truck cranes.

For the transport, they obtained a special permit from the Bremen authorities in advance under the condition that the transport is only carried out with an escort vehicle and between 22.00 hrs – 06.00 hrs. In the words of Mr. Mike Guttrof, Manager of the road transport department, “Due to the pandemic, three months passed between the request and delivery during which we had to obtain permits, procure the necessary equipment and personnel and coordinate all parties involved. In the end, everything worked as planned and we are watching with interest how the project on the former railway station site develops.”

Congratulations to Kopf + Lübben Cargo Services for the successful execution of this project!

The area is protected against viewing from the outside, closed with fences all around, electric doors and lock concretes in front of each vehicle.

The power of teamwork between Coop members leads to a successful cooperation shipment

A Coop member in Hamburg and a Coop member in Koper teamed up to competently deliver two new vehicles


Con-Truck Shipping GMBH- Coop member in Hamburg, Germany, and Globus Shipping Agency Ltd- Coop member in Koper, Slovenia, worked together to successfully ship two new Toyota Land Cruisers from Koper to Caucedo. Con-Truck took care of the sea freight via the CMA CGM shipping line while the trucking and stuffing of the container was arranged by Globus in cooperation with the Port of Koper.

Globus was also in charge of organising for the customs clearance in Slovenia. Both the parties are rather contented with the success of their cooperation shipment and are looking forward to more partnership ventures in the future.

We would like to congratulate Con-Truck Shipping GMBH and Globus Shipping Agency Ltd on the success of their cooperative venture.

If you are trying to find a partner in Koper or Hamburg, why not get in touch with their teams?
