Great environmental benefits

The climatic change is a topic of high priority for politicians all over the world and the means of control for reducing the emissions of carbon dioxide will be influencing the global economy; the emissions trading scheme is one example. Markets and companies that invest in green technology such as Flexiwaggon, are expected to be found in the lead of the future as well ass having strong arguments when marketing the company or brand.

Environmental issues within the transport sector is one of the greatest challenges on the global market. A reduction in the emissions of carbon dioxide within the sector would make quite a difference; a difference possible to measure from the very first freight load. The environmental benefits of Flexiwaggon are many and important. The greatest benefits relate to reducing the emissions of carbon dioxide but there are many more. There is less wear on the roads and noise pollution as well as emissions of exhaust and tire particles are reduced. Also, the solution contributes to improving road safety. A radical reduction of emissions of carbon dioxide is high on the EU agenda and also for many great nations of the world. Since the transport sector causes a substantial portion of the emissions of carbon dioxide, a transit to a larger share of railway-based transports is essential.

Transported with the Flexiwaggon

A lorry emits 2.7 kg carbon dioxide per litre of diesel. This means that a lorry driving across Sweden, between Malmö and Luleå emits 1.9 tons of carbon dioxide. A train with Flexiwaggons will accommodate for 28 lorries on this same route (750 m train length). This would result in a saving in carbon dioxide of approximately 53 tons between these cities.
