Planisfer has an extensive network of operational centres. We serve the main industrial centres in the region, so we can organise the exchange of wagons with Long-Haul Rail Operators at places that guarantee minimal door-to-door logistical cost.
In addition to the positioning of full wagonloads, Planisfer operates a local network of isolated wagons from the hubs of Saint-Ghislain and Chatelet. We offer regular service from those two marshalling yards to all the rail links in the region.
We provide specific training courses to meet the needs of your staff and can certify them through our own Rail Training Institute.Our Rail Training Institute.
We can provide the personnel and traction resources needed for the operations on your site, such as help with (un)loading wagons, internal traction, dispatching or administrative management.
Our mobile maintenance and repair teams stand ready to intervene rapidly wherever necessary.
Maintaining a rail infrastructure requires specific skills. Plansifer provides high level technical expertise and can advise you about the investment and maintenance works to be carried out.
Supervising or supplying an infrastructure site requires running on a rail track where the safety systems have been deactivated. Very specific skills are required to guarantee the safety of all parties concerned. Planisfer has a team of trained drivers capable of supervising your work trains.
Production cycles generate periods of less sustained production, entailing reduced transport needs. So stabling wagons outside the production site becomes crucial. Planisfer has two wagon stabling sites at Saint Ghislain and Châtelet. We see to the stabling of wagons, technical inspections and manoeuvres needed for the re-composition of the train sets when production picks up again.
Transport by complete train or full train loads is the most suitable transport solution for
sizeable volumes. Accordingly, Planisfer is already at the centre of a full train network
with destinations in many European countries.
Thanks to its parent company Lineas, Planisfer can provide full-load transport solutions depending on your destinations, irrespective of the type of goods: from chemicals to steel, via aggregates or cars.
Does the size of your consignments stand in the way of purchasing complete trains? The isolated wagon may be the solution for your needs. Particularly suitable for international transport, the isolated wagon provides an adaptable and flexible transport solution. Planisfer has daily connections with the international hubs of Antwerp (BE) and Tergnier (FR), which are themselves linked with the main European isolated wagon load networks. You can thus access all European destinations, even for reduced or irregular sized consignments.
You do not have a rail link? Planisfer is linked with many multi-modal platforms throughout the territory that provide transport by truck as well as transhipment on wagons. Furthermore, logistics operators have extensive skills that enable them to provide a wide range of related services.
