New Impulses for European Single Wagonload Transport

Over the last years, high production costs and low quality standards resulted in a declining market share of single wagon and wagon group transport in Europe. However, commercial sectors such as the chemicals or steel industries still have a demand for rail transport capacities below block train segments. This is where ViWaS comes in: By means of organizational and technical solutions, efficiency and quality standards of single wagonload transport shall be improved in the long run. The project focuses on selected aspects, such as increasing efficiency for servicing the “last mile” as well as developments in freight wagon technologies and intelligent telematics systems.
