Shunting - A system of high frequency transports/trailer manipulation at short distances
Ewals Cargo Care is a short-distance shuttle specialist. We have developed a system called „shunting“ for these shipments.
We optimize transport by managing the process with swap / stand-alone 100 m3 megatrailers and one or more trucks
The system is particularly suited for short-distance transportation with high daily frequencies but can also be used elsewhere, especially where the customer needs additional storage capacity (e.g. weekend production)
The advantage is that the customer can gradually load the trailer by himself. When the trailer is loaded, the truck comes and takes it to the destination - the the waiting costs are therefore eliminated
When using multiple swap trailers, the truck is the link between the individual loading and unloading points
Overall, the shunt system allows to realize transports of a much larger quantity of material / products with a smaller number of trucks / drivers. As a result, it reduces transport costs and improves transport efficiency
