Flat car model 13-6724 is the first railcar in the 1520-mm gauge space with a loading length of 46 feet and a load capacity of 80 t.
The flat car is designed to transport containers with a gross weight of up to 40 t. The economic effect of transporting cargo in containers on the flat car is achieved due to both the increased load capacity of the car and the increased volume of containers of 20-foot body length up to 7,010 mm. The container can hold up to 13 Euro-pallets of 800 mm x 1,200 mm and 10 standard pallets of 1,000 mm x 1,200 mm, while a common 20-foot container holds 11 and 8 pallets, respectively. The increased length of the container allows to load and efficiently transport a variety of steel coils and other unit loads.

"The three years of cooperation with UWC have convinced us of the operational advantages of Tikhvin railcars. Our fleet successfully operates 40-foot flat cars, which run between Russia and Poland, and Sgmmns-type container cars for intermodal transportation within the European Union. UWC has sufficient production capacity to cover our needs as a Customer, while it also meets delivery deadlines and, most importantly, ensures the required quality of the products supplied. We are considering further additions to our fleet with UWC railcars".
