When a valued customer shut down production in Marl, Germany, it posed some unusual challenges for DB Cargo BTT. Our customer's clients needed supplying with substitute deliveries, meaning additional rail freight traffic was required to get the right quantities to the right places at the right time. We organized special shipments from Marl to Belgium, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Slovakia, all of which complied with the stringent legal requirements for hazardous materials. We also brought the empty wagons back to Marl.

To ensure everything ran smoothly, we continually monitored the situation and kept everyone involved up to date. Proactive customer relationship management, web conferences, a dedicated mailing list, timely coordination in normal operations and in case of escalation, and monitoring of routes using GPS meant that we were able to lay the basis for a smooth shutdown to the full satisfaction of our customer.
