Changing transports globally

The demand from the market in respect of railway transports is high all over the world but the situation may differ between the countries. In countries within the EU and in countries such as Canada, USA and Australia, the basic concept is to use the railway for long-distance transports and lorries driving short distances, which is regarded as the most optimal, both in terms of transportation economy and environmental concern. In other countries such as India, Russia and China, the need for railway transports is generally high since the road infrastructure is limited.

The most essential task for Flexiwaggon, has been to find solutions that can eliminate the problems that have so far hindered the development of goods transport by railway; problems such as time-consuming loading and unloading procedures, and the dependency on terminals which have made railway freight of goods in most cases an expensive and unprofitable business.

The development of Flexiwaggon has made it possible to transport goods faster and more efficiently on railway. The unique feature of Flexiwaggon is the flexible system for transferring goods between road and railway – without any use of terminals. With the simple pressing of a button, the driver can load and unload the goods and the railway carriage can continue, running on schedule. In as little as 7 minutes, the goods can be transshipped without disrupting the traffic on parallel tracks.
