Service & Regulations
BR International Consulting Services (BR-ICS) provides all necessary services concerning load securing of military equipment on European railways. As the only supplier in Europe of load securing of military vehicles on railway wagons, BR-ICS provides a reliable team of trained experts in each country supervised.
The legal regulations for securing vehicles on European railways are laid down in the UIC loading guidelines volume 1 and volume 2. The securing of military vehicles is regulated in the guidelines of the NATO "Allied Movement Publication-4" (AMovP-4).
BR-ICS is able to provide these services in several European countries such as Benelux, Germany, Poland, Austria, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria and Greece at various loading points including seaports, railway stations or military infrastructures with feeder lines. In the above mentioned countries, several teams are available at any time providing the correct lashing materials (chains, belts and/or metal thorn wedges) in the required strength (daN) according to the valid international loading guidelines.
Also, when the train arrives at its final destination there are teams waiting and ready to take off the load securing materials from the military vehicles in order to ensure a safe and uncomplicated unloading.
We offer emergency services in case of breakdowns of railway wagons and also in case of a third party fault concerning the load securing. In all kind of cases our expert-teams are able to solve the problem right at the particular border (or other places) in order to enable a smooth onward transport.
If necessary, all services can also be provided in other countries.
