TX LOGISTIK ORDERS 115 NEW WAGONS FOR INTERMODAL TRANSPORT
TX Logistik AG has ordered a further 115 double pocket wagons of the T3000 type for intermodal transport. The first wagons are scheduled to be delivered in late summer of this year.
The modern pocket wagons are produced by the Slovakian manufacturer Tatravagonka. They have a 30-foot container suspension, fast-acting brakes and the latest generation of thermostable wheelsets. According to TX Logistik, the T3000 is increasingly becoming the standard wagon in intermodal transport, with which both semi-trailers and containers can be flexibly transported at a top speed of up to 120 kilometers per hour.
In addition, the model is particularly suitable for the TX handling system NiKRASA, with which semi-trailers that cannot be craned can also be easily loaded onto the rails. The recently introduced new version 3.0 no longer requires a terminal ramp, is stackable and has been optimized once again for the rail transport of megatrailers.
With the new T3000 order, TX Logistik is fulfilling the company's strategic goal of increasing its own share of freight wagons for intermodal transport to a consistent 50 percent. In this segment, sustained market demand for rail transport, not least driven 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 be able to react even more flexibly to the intermodal demand in its European network in the future.
