ZAGRO road-rail Unimog U 423 for the animal feed industry

HaBeMa Futtermittel GmbH & Co. KG in Hamburg is one of the most efficient service providers on the German feed market. The location in the Port of Hamburg, which is one of the most important hubs for global import and export, makes a significant contribution to the company success. Therefore, it is essential to rely on the flexible and reliable technology.

Once again, the company opted for a ZAGRO road-rail vehicle. The new ZAGRO Unimog U 423 road-rail vehicle will ensure smooth and economical handling of animal feed at this important location in the future. Thus, this vehicle replaces a U 400, which was in shunting operations for a total of over 35,000 hours at HaBeMa.

The high-performance vehicle is equipped with a special homologation and some modifications for its towing capacity of 1000 tons and the radio remote control. With a railway approval in accordance with BoA (Operating Regulations for Sidings), the Unimog U 423 fulfils all the necessary railway regulations for use on the company premises.

By opting for a modern shunting vehicle, our customer gains flexibility for their own logistics. By switching quickly between road and rail, the road-rail shunting vehicle surpasses any rail-based technology in terms of flexibility and cost.

ZAGRO Bahn- und Baumaschinen GmbH has delivered more ZAGRO shunting vehicles based on Unimog to two other locations of HaBeMa Futtermittel GmbH & Co. KG: Heidenau / Saxony and Drentwede / Lower Saxony.
