DHL is delivering 676 coaches from Hungary to Egypt
DHL Industrial Projects is supporting Dunakeszi Járműjavító Kft with the transport of the largest order of rolling stock in the history of Hungary. A total of 676 coaches are being transferred from the production site in Dunakeszi to Egypt within a time frame of 32 months.
DHL will manage the end-to-end transport of the coaches, which each weigh 48 tonnes and measure 24.5 metres in length and 4.5 metres in height.
Packaged for export, the coaches are transported via rail to the port of Koper, Slovenia, where DHL is transferring the coaches to its charter carriers. From there, the freight forwarder is shipping the cargo to the Port of Alexandria in Egypt, where the coaches will be transferred directly onto the railway network. The first batch arrived safely in Alexandria on February 23.
