Intermodal transports

The fully automatic Railway Carriage.

By taking freight transport from the highway to the railway, Flexiwaggon enables significant cost reductions across the value chain while greatly improving sustainability in the transport industry. It enables lorries, buses, cars and containers to be transported on the same wagon. Also, Flexiwaggon enables individual loading and unloading of wagons. When the train stops, the loading and unloading of Flexiwaggon can take place almost anywhere. The only requirement is for the rail to be surrounded by a firm base which can hold the weight of the vehicle to be loaded or unloaded. The driver operates the loading or unloading of his own truck. Loading and unloading is done horizontally, which means no consideration is necessary for overhead contact lines. To load or unload an entire train set takes only 7 minutes. The lorry can drive on and off the wagon, with no need for reversing.

Flexiwaggon moves at speeds of 120 kilometers per hour and we are looking for solutions to reach 160 kilometers per hour. The wagon is not dependent on outside electrical power supplies. Shaft generators on the Flexiwaggon generates energy which is then stored in batteries located on the wagon. Electrical outlets are built into the wagon. Flexiwaggon can load up to 52 tonnes, which can be compared with similar solutions loading 38-44 tonnes.
