United Wagon Company has delivered a new batch of flat cars and box cars to Bodi International, LLC.
The multi-purpose flat car with a payload capacity of 77.5 t and loading length of 40 feet can carry wheeled and tracked vehicles, large-capacity containers and tank containers for non-hazardous goods with a gross weight of up to 36 t, as well as specialised containers with a gross weight of up to 40 t.
The box car is fit for a wide range of cargoes owing to its balanced technical parameters: a payload of 73 t and a body volume of 175 m³. The floor space allows for 44 loaded Euro pallets, which is one of the best capacities in the 1520-mm gauge area.
Project Director at Bodi International, LLC:
Mongolia continues to develop its rail infrastructure at the junction of transport corridors with Russia and China. In 2022, almost 900 km of tracks were built in the country. This year, more than 1,000 kilometres of tracks are set for construction in several directions. In this regard, we are increasing our haul and freight rolling stock fleet. Freight cars from Tikhvin meet our payload and speed requirements, have been field tested under our conditions and have been operating reliably in our fleet for over 2 years.
