Agility to ship 420 TALGO railcars from Madrid to Astana, Kazakhstan

2012 04 28

GLOBAL logistics provider, Agility, has won a contract to move 420 railcars from Spain to Kazakhstan for TALGO, a Madrid-based Spanish manufacturer of railway rolling stock.

The company's teams across Europe - from Spain, Finland and Kazakhstan - will handle this complex, heavy-lift project. The company had earlier succeeded in delivering the initial shipment of railcars against extremely challenging deadlines.

Under the contract, Agility will provide all logistics services starting with the collection of the railcars at factories in Spain through delivery to Talgo's works in Astana, Kazakhstan.

Alejandro Goicoechea and Jose Luis Oriol founded TALGO (Tren Articulado Ligero Goicoechea Oriol, or Goicoechea-Oriol light articulated trains) in 1942.

Agility intends to apply its specialised expertise, global network and partnerships to manage the movement of the rolling stock from origin to final destination.

"Agility has a strong presence in Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan," said Francesc Casamitjana, managing director of area south. "We understand fast moving economies and bring experience and know-how to industries such as engineering, energy, mining and heavy equipment supply."
