Case Study

Multi-mode importation of Locomotives

Osprey – Multi-mode importation of Locomotives from Osprey on Vimeo.


To manage the long-term logistics of fully commissioned rail ready locomotives that are built in a non-UK gauge country and therefore cannot be transported by rail.

Such long-term logistics solutions require an integrated system that is flexible to accept changes to production and delivery program without significantly increasing costs or impacting schedules. No one can foresee the all the future challenges so robustness and flexibility need to be considered at the start and maintained throughout the project.

As the transport contractor we see our role is to solve potential problems. To achieve this we ensure that first we fully understand the problem so that we can then engineer the best solution and actively taking responsibility.

The result:

Multiple deliveries of damage free locomotives working to the clients schedule.
