RB Group has ordered 3 600 Type 13-6903 container wagons from United Wagon Co. The 80ft wagons have a capacity of 74·5 tonnes and can carry 20, 30 or 40 ft containers including refrigerated containers and tank containers of up to 36 tonnes.
‘The container transport market has been showing growth for several years in a row’, said UWC Sales Director Ivan Mikhalevich.
‘In addition to export and domestic flows, transit traffic is actively developing on the China – Europe and Asia – Russian Far East – Europe corridors. Taking into account the increasing competition in the market, minimising transport costs is becoming more urgent. This requires the technical advantages of new generation freight rolling stock, which is more efficient and reliable’.
