Wood company places major timber flat car order
The Russian company, United Wagon Company (UWC), is to supply 75 high-capacity flat cars for timber transport to Kastamonu, one of Europe’s largest wood-processing companies.
The first batch of 30 x 40 foot long model 13-6852-02 flat cars with a 122 cbm loading volume has already been shipped to Kastamonu.
Over the next year, UWC will deliver a further 45 x 60 foot long model 13-6895 platforms with a 155 cbm loading volume. The key advantages of both flat cars types are their increased payload capacity and loading volume.
The model 13-6852-02 flat car can carry an extra 5 cbm of wood and model 13-6895 has a 30-40% higher loading capacity. (ben)
