Gebrüder Weiss brings more light to Mongolia 25 November 2021

Organises rail transport of 12,600 LED street luminaires for Zumtobel

Gebrüder Weiss has transported 12,600 LED street luminaires and lamp posts to Mongolia via the New Silk Road rail route for the lighting group Zumtobel. Within twelve months, more than 80 containers were delivered on schedule from Austria to the Mongolian capital of Ulaanbaatar. All this was done against the backdrop of an infrastructure project of the Mongolian government, for which the Zumtobel Group was commissioned two years ago to supply and install street luminaires.

The risk of transport damage due to strong acceleration forces during train transport was eliminated by means of special load securing in the container. During the approximately 30-day journey, the nine-meter-long lamp posts were securely stored in specially made wooden racks that prevented the cargo from sliding around in their containers.

Gebrüder Weiss recommended choosing the rail option via the New Silk Road to the customer Zumtobel because IT wanted to avoid problems that would have arisen due to time delays in sea transport as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
