On November 24, the ScanMed Team visited the Alnabru intermodal terminal in Oslo. Safe to say, we were positively impressed!
Did you know?
- Alnabru has been the hub for rail freight traffic in Norway since 1902.
- With an area of 57.000 sqm, 50 different tracks, and 4 entry options, it is the largest rail freight terminal in the Nordics.
- Around 27 trains arrive to and depart from the terminal daily, for a total of 2000-2500 TEU in and out.
- The two new semi-automated RMG cranes are operated from a Remote Operating Station (ROS), increasing productivity at lower costs while improving safety through an efficient camera system.
- The gates are automated, reducing truck queues and efficiently directing drivers to their delivery location.
- Terminal services are provided by CargoNet AS and Onrail.
- Despite several challenges in the past years, departure punctuality has remained relatively stable at 80-85%.
A special thanks to Vidar Flydal, Regional Terminal Manager at Bane NOR, for sharing his long experience and plenty of insights with us!
