Arctech Solar Starts Rail-Sea Intermodal Transport to Accelerate Global Project Delivery Speed

PVTIME – Arctech Solar, a leading solar tracking, racking, and BIPV system provider, recently announced that the company has adopted rail-sea intermodal transport for its international business. Adopting this transportation model creates an industrial precedent in the tracker logistics process and indicates the great improvement of the delivery efficiency and delivery volume for Arctech Solar’s international orders.

A milestone to illustrate this is the shipment of the first batch of SkyLine trackers for a 20MW solar project in Chile, including 42 containers, departed from Changzhou in eastern China and left China’s border through Yangshan port, located in Shanghai. It saved nearly 25% of the domestic land logistics cost of the whole project.

This is the result of Arctech Solar’s 3 months of dedicated work with China International Marine Containers Group. They jointly solved the problem of unbalanced loading for containers without increasing extra packaging costs and affecting the loading efficiency. The lead time is substantially shorter due to the improvement of logistics efficiency, especially solving various problems such as traffic jams during public holidays and accurately locating and dispatching vehicles on time. Arctech Solar has optimized the logistics chain and adopted intermodal transport in response to the logistics restrictions and cost increases in wake of the COVID-19.

Arctech Solar, as always, is committed to providing reliable top-quality products, customized project solutions, and customer demand-oriented service to meet growing demands across the globe. The company adds value to its global partners despite global changes.
