    What matters when wheat, colza, sunflower, oats, barley, and other cereals, sugar and glucose are transported is diligence, experience, flexibility and knowhow.

    For over decades, B Logistics has developed expertise in transport by rail of agro-industrial products in complete and regular shuttle trains of net 2.000 tons. For JIT transports between customer sidings, we developed high quality transport chains, with specific priorities and back up systems. Especially in this segment, sustainability is key. The innovative rail solutions of B Logistics make sure your transport leaves a low carbon footprint.

  • Combustiles

    Combustiles

    Rail is the safest mode of land transportation for freight and one of the safest ways to transport hazardous materials.

    In hazardous goods logistics, safety is of paramount importance. The accident risk of rail is 5 times lower than on the road. The rail industry has seen a steep decline—on already incredibly low numbers —in hazmat train accident rates since 1980. Specific education, ongoing training as well as years of experience in the mineral oil and liquid gas industries showcase the competence of B Logistics. Moreover, our company is SQAS certified and can help you with our dangerous goods experts (RID).
