For the majority of our wagons, RailRelease is the so called Keeper and Entity in Charge of Maintenance (ECM), meaning we guarantee the safe operating state of our fleet.

Our fleet:

  • Sggnss 80ft-XL Intermodal (this version provides the option to distribute the load evenly, thanks to the wagon's adjustable headstock and reinforced underframe)
  • Sggrss 80ft Intermodal (ideal for maritime 40ft containers)
