4 Ways the uShip-DB Schenker Deal Refines the Future of Freight

Juni 2014)  Mit dem größten Frachtflugzeug der Welt, mit dem Binnenschiff und mit einem Schwergut-Lkw bringt DB Schenker Logistics einen 141 Tonnen schweren Abhitzekessel von Berlin nach Kanada. Das Schwerstück der Firma BORSIG reist vom Borsig-Hafen unter DB Schenker-Regie bis nach Edmonton in Kanada. 
Zunächst wird der 16 Meter lange Kühler am 20. Juni mit einem mobilen 1.000-Tonnen-Kran im Borsig-Hafen auf ein Binnenschiff verladen. Das Schiff bringt ihn dann nach Aken an der Elbe. Dort wird der Abhitzekessel am 23. Juni im Hafen mit einem Kran auf einen Schwerguttransporter von DB Schenker umgeschlagen, der dann die Fracht mit einem ziehenden und einem schiebenden Lkw zum Flughafen Leipzig/Halle bringt. Am Morgen des 25. Juni beginnt die Verladung in die sechsstrahlige Antonov AN 225, das größte Frachtflugzeug der Welt, das von Karpeles Flight Services, den DB Schenker-Spezialisten für das Chartern von Flugzeugen, gechartert wurde.
