New wagons for Freightliner

[ September 27, 2021   //   ]

Freightliner has taken delivery of the first 40 of 230 new FFA-G intermodal 40ftwagons from Poland. The remainder are due to be delivered by November 2021.

The new FFA-G wagon is the culmination of two-and-a-half years of work with partners Greenbrier Europe and Wabtec Axiom Rail and are over two tonnes lighter per platform than its nearest competitor. The modern low track force bogies ensure significantly reduced noise levels and minimise track damage.

The combination of weight saving and closely coupled 40ft wagons will save an additional 7% of carbon emissions.
The FFA-G has wider W10 network gauge clearance for 9’6” containers than other 40ft wagons.
