United Wagon Company (UWC) has delivered a batch of flat cars on 25 t bogies for transporting timber freight, under the terms of an additional agreement signed this summer with Arkhbum, a major regional operator on the railway services market in Russia. This is now the third delivery of new generation cars the operator has received since the beginning of the year.

Arkhbum’s fleet now counts over 300 rolling stock units from the Russian manufacturer. The model 13-6852-02 (40-foot) flat car is designed for transporting timber materials. It has an increased loading capacity of 74 t and an increased loading volume of 122 sqm which, taking into account current tariffs, reduces transport costs per tonne of freight.
