Equipped for inland transportation

indurad is a German company that has made a sizeable impact in the world of dry bulk handling. Its products are used with a wide range of commodities, from metallic ore to agricultural products. Since its founding in Aachen in 2008, indurad has branched off into all major markets and counts some of the world’s largest mines, ports and terminals as its customers.


Copper and coal miner Teck Resources operates Fording River mine in southeastern British Columbia in Canada. The mine produces nine million tonnes of metallurgical coal annually, which is shipped by rail to Vancouver for export.

In 2020, indurad commissioned its iLoadout solution at one of the mine’s two train loadouts and in the following month, railcar underloading was reduced by half and tonnes shipped was increased dramatically.

The system uses indurad’s radars to determine exactly how and when to operate the chutes so that the load is maximized for each car while at the same time ensuring that no car gets overloaded and ensuring an optimal load distribution. Using iLoadout, Teck Resources has been able to cut its railcar unloading time by half. indurad’s systems halve rail loadout time, vastly increasing throughput between bogies.

The speed with which a car can now be loaded has been increased by 41.5%, reducing the total time to load a train to only two and a half hours…
