GOD'S RAILWAY laid the foundation for an industrial society from the turn of the century


The focus on energy efficiency and environmental impact has meant that long-distance freight transport by road has reached the end of the road!

Radical changes are required and CCT Intermodal Sweden AB creates the modern transports of the future for goods, minimal energy consumption and little impact on our environment.


REMAINS modern even NEXT CENTURY

There is no doubt that all long-distance goods will be transported by rail!

Energy consumption must be crucial

If you want to be serious about saving energy, the long-distance transports must be transferred to rail. Since most freight transport is performed with maximum speeds around 90 km / h, the single largest impact comes from the rolling resistance. There is a generally accepted practice that in order to move unit 1 by rail, energy 1 is needed and with truck energy 15. Then the different composite efficiencies of the vehicles must be taken into account.

The result is:

Railway approx. 2

For truck transports with diesel engines 74

For trucks with electric motors approx. 35 - 45

Should we continue to pay for these high energy costs as well as other negative emissions that truck traffic produces forever?

Intermodal freight transport has two built-in system faults

The picture shows the two system errors together.

The trailer: Why should the railway transport with a container with wheel axles and a lot of things that are not needed for rail transport. Also requires special trolleys to be able to be transported at all. Increases transportation costs immensely.

Reloading: To be able to reload the trailer from the train, a cordless area is required for trucks and cranes to be able to handle the trailer. The train must be arranged to a cordless terminal area where the handling equipment is located. Completely destroys the logistics approach.

Result: Can only be considered in the case of endpoint transports and is not for a rational intermodal handling solution.


 

The trailer must be removed in intermodal transports

Trailers problem! Terminals for handling trailers require cordless space and high lifts. Costly cranes and shutters create high costs for reloading trailers.

Need a trailer? Not really. It is just as easy to use a clean container. Why should you handle with wheel axles and use expensive special trailers for trailers.

Go over to containers! Then the costs for transhipment at simple terminals can be significantly reduced and we can get a rational liner traffic that benefits all customers. There will also be faster service to customers.

Time to do something!

Result: Can only be considered for endpoint transports and is not for a rational intermodal management solution

 

A system change must take place in intermodal transport

changes both the price picture and service for the intermodal transports. More frequent trips and lower costs. Cheap terminals in many places instead of a few transhipment terminals.

Shorter feed transports result in more departures and it is possible to set up a very competitive transport structure when you eliminate end-point traffic. You also do not transport the goods back in the direction of transport, but you constantly move the goods forward.

 

Simple automatic terminals with horizontal transhipments under the existing "ant" power line

It is possible to create simple, efficient automatic terminals that are close together and that meet the requirement for a modern terminal. These terminals do not handle trailers. Therefore, the reloading cost will be very low.

A simple terminal can be placed on a side track to the main track and the train can easily just get off the track for a short time for transhipments and then run directly out on the main track again. No ranking down to special terminal area that is free of power lines.

The "ant" automatically handles container units between the railway and terminals and vice versa. A fast reload and it is automatically operating.

Shorter feed transports result in more departures and it is possible to set up a very competitive transport structure when you eliminate end-point traffic.

The terminal's products

The simple clean container is the load carrier that will apply in the future. The PW container (pallet wide) is now also available, which allows 2 pallets in width. Can directly compete with the trailer's load capacity. Because the terminals are responsible for the entire distribution, including the distribution vehicles, a pure responsibility is obtained for the distribution to function.

Close between the terminals, scheduled traffic instead of endpoint transports. Fully automatic terminals that load and unload containers under the existing power line. The terminals are simple and flowing, the train comes in, the automatic reloading takes place quickly and the train is out on the track again.

 

Full-scale tests were performed with distribution vehicles and a 40-foot container

In a test with a 40-foot container and the distribution vehicle for 40-foot containers was carried out on a full scale during the 4-month test period. The vehicle had to carry out real transports with real material and between real customers. The container was placed on the intended posts / support legs and could be loaded, unloaded when it was placed on site.

It was also possible to load and unload the container by truck as it could not move in any direction. A major safety factor when loading and unloading.

Here you will find a video from the test kernels

Freight terminals for high-speed trains

A fast freight network that will be one level up will require special terminals. Everything will be done one level up and suitably there will be handling equipment working on that level. Then, as the sketch shows, you can place high bearings on both sides of the terminal.

There will be highly efficient terminals with automatic transhipment and the goods can be driven further out into the country at 2 - 300 km / h, which will really increase the industry's opportunities for competition. In addition, it is moved almost frictionlessly with our InfraMag solution

With steel bridges for freight transport and InfraMag!

It is quite possible to build a freight system that transports goods at speeds between 250 and 350 km / m. In addition, the infraMag solution will enable the transports to take place almost frictionlessly. The e-commerce goods that are transported by passenger trains can have a speed of 4 - 600 km / h.

The system will be completely independent as the goods move 3 to 4 times faster with the train (heavier goods) than with trucks. In addition, the trucks have a significantly higher energy consumption for moving goods on the ground. There is thus no reason to count on the truck as a general means of transport for goods in the future.

Trucks are needed but only as a pure distribution vehicle. There is reason to expect major changes in the transport industry. For a fast system that is environmentally friendly, low energy costs and very flexible.

Development of freight transport in the future

Energy and environmental costs will be governing.

The long-distance transports will only be transported by rail. Can be transported at 3-4 times higher speeds, compared to trucks, and at a fraction of the energy costs of the truck and the environmental impact of the railway is almost non-existent.

The truck is needed but only in distribution, the vehicles belong to the terminals. But distribution by truck is also very limited. Has large energy costs and is negative for the environment, even with electric power.

A lot of distribution will take place with drones, which belong to the terminals. Has high energy costs and affects the environment. Great advantage that it does not need any physical infrastructure.
