Through an automatic loading and unloading system, the train connects the mining operation with Puerto Bolívar on a journey of approximately four hours. It is the only railway operation globally that has an escort system to prevent accidents on the railway line.

We are the only railway operation in the world with an accompaniment system to prevent accidents. In addition, we have the only train that adapts tank cars, with a capacity of 80,000 liters, to supply drinking water to the communities near our operation.
