Transport orders

A transport order is the first step to a successful shipping transaction.

A correct and timely order ensures that the transport takes place. The freight transport and transport service are planned, scheduled and resourced according to the information in the transport order. Empty wagons will also be delivered to the requested loading place, if necessary, based on the transport order.

For both rail and road traffic, transport orders are made through the Logistics360 service. Use of the service requires being a contractual customer and customer-specific IDs.

For additional information, contact VR Transpoint’s sales.
