Ternium has tested a multi-modal logistics system to transport steel in Colombia, a media report from El Heraldo said. The company transported about 4,000 mt of steel using a railway, among other logistics methods.

The media report said Ternium is considering using the multi-modal transportation system to reduce freight costs by about 10 percent, as compared with the road-only method it currently uses.

Ternium said it first received the steel shipped by sea to a local port. Then, the product was transported through railway. From the railway, the 4,000 mt of steel was transported through a road to reach its final destination, the Manizales mill, located in Caldas, Colombia.
