Too big for rail freight

Militzer & Münch transported out-of-gauge wooden boxes, a total weight of circa 28,300 kilograms, from Shanghai, China, to Almaty in Kazakhstan. Much too big for rail transport – but Militzer & Münch offered the perfect solution to transport the huge blower systems for transformers.


For a renowned German technology corporation, Militzer & Münch China has been handling regular transports via rail from China to Germany since late summer last year. Which is why the customer also commissioned Militzer & Münch with the transport of transformer cabinet blowers and cell cabinets from China to Kazakhstan. As usual, this shipment was also meant to go by rail; yet owing to a change in regulations, rail freight was not possible.
