Polish forwarder purchases 1,000 flat cars
Russian manufacturer UWC and Laude Smart Intermodal in Poland have signed a contract on the development and supply of 1,000 flat cars for the transportation of containers along the Russia–Poland transport corridor.
The model 13-6724 is the first flat car on the 1,520 mm track gauge space with a loading length of 46 feet and a loading capacity of 80 t. A notable feature of the car is its ability to transport a wide range of container types, including two non-standard specialised containers of up to 7 m in length with a gross weight of up to 40 t.
The flat cars are expected to be delivered by the end of 2021. Taking into account the latest contract, the number of UWC’ cars in Laude’s fleet will rise to 1,841 units.
