In order to make the logistics mix more diverse and reduce dependence on inland waterway vessels, the Koehler Paper Group has intelligently expanded its rail siding in Kehl, Germany.

The aim was to transport more pulp by environmentally friendly rail. Where there used to be room for only three wagons, since January 2020 at least 14 wagons loaded with pulp have been running to Kehl every day at night in order to reliably supply the mill. The plan is to transport up to a third of the pulp required for the plant by rail - a total of 150,000 tonnes.

So far, the figure has been 30,000 tons. Koehler Paper Group developed the concept in cooperation with the specialist freight forwarder Fr. Meyer's Sohn and DB Cargo. „Everything runs as it should“, say the logistics experts at Koehler.
