115 new wagons ordered for intermodal transports
Troisdorf, 23 May 2023 – TX Logistik AG continues to invest in its own freight wagon fleet. The rail logistics company, which belongs to Mercitalia Logistics (Gruppo FS Italiane), has ordered further 115 double pocket wagons of the type T3000 for its intermodal transports. Delivery of the first wagons is scheduled for late summer this year.
The modern pocket wagons are produced by the Slovakian manufacturer Tatravagonka. They have a 30-foot container suspension, fast-acting brakes and thermostable wheelsets of the latest generation. The T3000 is increasingly becoming the standard wagon in intermodal transport, according to TX Logistik, with which both semi-trailers and containers can be flexibly transported at a maximum speed of up to 120 kilometres per hour. In addition, the model is particularly well adapted to the TX transhipment system NiKRASA, with which non-craneable semi-trailers can also be easily loaded onto the rail. The recently introduced new version 3.0 does not need a terminal ramp any more, is stackable and has been optimised once again for the rail transport of megatrailers.
With the new order of the T3000, TX Logistik is fulfilling the company’s strategic goal of increasing its own share of freight wagons for intermodal transport to 50 percent overall. In this segment, the continuing market demand for transport by rail, driven not least by the political goal of expanding the share of rail freight to 25 percent by 2030, has led to a shortage of rolling stock. With access to its own wagon capacities, TX Logistik AG will thus be able to react even more flexibly to intermodal demand in its European network in the future.
