Russian freight car manufacturer United Wagon Company shipped the first batch of more than 200 fitting flatcars under a contract with the rail operator New Logistic. The total volume of deliveries by the end of 2022 will be 1,000 flatcars.

The main competitive advantage of the flatcar model 13-6903 for transportation of large-capacity containers is an increased payload of 74.5 tons at a loading length of 80 feet. It is also possible to transport tank containers and containers, including refrigerator containers of different sizes with a gross weight of up to 36 tons. The wagon has MTU-approved placement and fastening of large-capacity containers. The car is equipped with bogies with an axial load of 25 tons, which characteristics ensure the reliability of operation and increased mileage between overhauls (8 years or up to 1 million km).

In 2021, against the background of container transportation growth, demand for fitting platforms in the Russian market increased significantly. The growth driver was a significant development of the export-import flow of containers between Russia and China. Due to the increased demand, last year's production of models 13-6903 increased threefold as compared to the result of 2020, exceeding the mark of 1.8 thousand units. The share of this model's platform output was about 11% of the total volume of 80-foot fitting platforms built in Russia in 2021.

Sergey Kust, General Director of New Logistics: "Last year, the segment of container transportation by the railway network showed significant growth. Customers' needs were closed at the capacity limit. It is the main reason for increasing our fleet with modern cars with improved capacity characteristics. The efficiency of OEC platforms in operation will ensure continuous operation and customer needs."
