    Forestry Logistics

    Where there's a railway, there's a better way

    For more than one hundred years, ExTe has successfully designed, developed and delivered products for the safe and efficient securing of cargo. Today ExTe has 70 employees and a turnover of approximately €16M with approximately 20% from the rail sector. ExTe aims to secure cargo as safely as possible at the lowest possible cost.


    ExTe’s rail products are largely manufactured in high-strength steel. All designs are first scrutinised in FEA before prototyping and testing in ExTe’s laboratory. The laboratory tests first comprise of tests to determine the product strength vs UIC and TSI norms. Thereafter, destructive tests are carried out in order understand braking point forces and number of force-cycles before fatigue. Finally, ExTe products undergo operational testing before entering revenue service.


    Note: The term “timber bunk” means a bolster with two stanchions (hence, it takes two timber bunks to carry one pile/bundle/stack of logs).
