In Dietikon, Planzer’s transshipment logistics specialists load the trailer with general cargo headed for Ticino in the correct unloading order, and the dispatch division communicates the delivery date to the end customer. A high-performance SBB Cargo forklift picks up the fully loaded trailer at the goods station in Dietikon and places it on the rail wagon. Once the train arrives in Ticino, the towing vehicle can connect directly to the trailer and head off to the first delivery point straight away. To put it another way, we can cut out a complete transshipment and the administrative effort for the last mile in Ticino.
Our fleet newcomer from the manufacturer Wecon – 11.7 metres long, 2.6 metres wide and 4 metres high – was specially created for Planzer, and we are proud to report that we are also the official importer. For the aficionados: in the field of vehicle approval, Planzer is authorised to sign test reports (form 13.20A) for vehicles with type approval / data sheet number 9WB305. The newcomer is the first of its kind in Europe, offering space for 27 pallets and a maximum load capacity of 14.8 tonnes. It is equipped with two mounting points and a steering axle, while the chassis has additional reinforcement. It does not require a special towing vehicle for connection. With its technically intelligent design, the ‘Cityliner’ remains manoeuvrable and is particularly well-suited for delivering general cargo in urban areas.
