Ermewa delivers 200 newly built grain wagons to Rail Cargo Logistics

The first 25 newly built grain wagons were handed over to Rail Cargo Logistics GmbH one month ago, with a further 175 wagons to follow by the end of 2023.

Ermewa is thus expanding its already 5,700-wagon existing fleet in this segment, which is set to continue growing in the coming years. More than 1,000 new grain wagons have already been ordered by Ermewa and will be integrated into its fleet over the next two years, with various capacities, to optimize the transportation of different types of grains.

The two hundred newly delivered grain wagons belong to the Tagnpps type and have a loading volume of 95 m³ with a loading capacity of 69.7t, a high safety level, and high durability. They are all equipped with future-proof components. These include the GPS device and the ability to convert to the Digital Automatic Coupling (DAC). The design of the wagon makes it ideally suited for transporting various agricultural products throughout Europe.

"The lease of Ermewa's high-performance newly built wagons is part of the growth strategy that Rail Cargo Logistics is following in the area of grain transport," says Reinhold Pölzl, Business Unit Manager at Rail Cargo Logistics. The current wagon delivery strengthens the long-standing business relationship with Ermewa and comes at exactly the right time: "Shortly, the wagons will be used, among other things, to support the Green Belt Land bridge," says Pölzl.

The initiative enables Ukrainian grain to be transported by rail to the European hinterland. Part of the 175 wagons to be delivered next year will go directly to the Czech RCL subsidiary and be integrated into the Rail Cargo Logistics s.r.o fleet.
