The rail wagon rethought

[ September 8, 2021   //   ]

Leasing company VTG says it has revolutionised the rail wagon with its m² modular concept. When the superstructure can be swapped for another one, a wagon is no longer limited to just a single transportation purpose and they can be made available more quickly. Wagons that have seasonal use no longer have to spend the rest of the year standing idle. They also make repair processes more efficient: if a container is defective, it is no longer necessary to send the whole wagon to the workshop, as an intact container can simply be placed on the existing platform – or vice-versa. The m2 concept also includes modular underframes that allow wagons to be adjusted to any length.
