Lgss055

High-speed freight wagon for containers

The Lgss-y055 is a two-axle flat wagon designed for speeds of up to 160 km/h. It has a 20-tonne axle load and is the result of a collaboration between Kockums Industrier, Green Cargo and Posten. The aim was to further develop the rail transport of postal cargoes. Satisfying RIV and UIC requirements, the wagon is ideal for transporting 7.82-metre swap bodies. It can also carry standard containers. To meet the demands of high-speed transport, the wagon has well-damped suspension and a disc brake system. The wagon’s low loading height means that the inner floor of the swap body lines easily up with the loading platform.

Making it easy for you to simplify and streamline your logistics, our HSC design is an intermodal wagon for transporting swap bodies and containers. Swap bodies can be up to 7.82 m long and carried at speeds of up to 160 km/h. Besides the low loading height ensuring easy alignment with loading platforms, the wagon’s automatic, lockable, container fastening system also increases loading and unloading efficiency at terminals.
