NLMK La Louvière Optimizes Logistics Flow

In early July, the logistics team of NLMK La Louvière, one of the leading producers of flat steel coils in Belgium and part of NLMK Group, a Metal-Expo regular exhibitor, launched the use of multi-purpose wagons for transporting slabs and coils by train. The objective of this innovation is to optimize the logistics flow and improve customer service while reducing environmental impact. In late 2019, with the support of NLMK Group, the logistics team of NLMK La Louvière decided to introduce multi-purpose wagons in the La Louvière - Port of Ghent logistics flow. Slabs arrive at NLMK La Louvière by train. Whereas previously the train would go back empty, it now goes to Ghent loaded with hot rolled and pickled coils, intended for customers in Flanders.

The multi-purpose wagons can be used to carry both slabs and coils.
