Tamagnone, carrier and logistics operator specialized in transport and storage of coils, was chosen by ArcelorMittal for handling the rails produced in their plants in Spain and Poland, addressed at different construction sites of Ferrovie dello Stato (Italian State Railways) to improve the current railway network.
The 108-metre rails commissioned by Ferrovie dello Stato are for high-speed lines and for replacement of old 16/23-meter rails sections.
Loading, unloading and shipping operations - which take place at the Orbassano site - are particularly sophisticated and require special equipment that only Tamagnone can guarantee.
At beginning of 2018, the first loads of approx. 1000 tons arrived from the ArcelorMittal’s Spanish factory of Gijon, overcoming all the problems caused by this shipment because of the different track gauge in Spain compared to other European countries.
Arrivals will now be regular from Spain and occasionally also from Poland.
Tamagnone srl is a subsidiary of ArcelorMIttal CLN Distribuzione Italia srl.
