Transfesa Logistics launches the first train with its new high-capacity car-carriers for international routes.

These wagons are unique in the market due to their characteristics, since they are specially designed to respond to new trends in the automotive market, where the production of large and heavy vehicles, as well as electric cars prevails.

Transfesa Logistics has added to its international traffic network the first train made up of 18 of the 100 new car-carriers manufactured in Poland.

These units have the capacity to circulate both Iberian gauge (1668 mm) and UIC (1435 mm) and have been specially designed to respond to the new logistics needs of customers in the automotive segment.

Given the growing demand for electric cars and vehicles of greater dimensions and weight, the company has created a unique model in the market, due to its technical characteristics, to carry out transport with the maximum guarantees of safety and flexibility.

The 100 car carriers are 31m long and equipped with an innovative regulation system that allows the upper deck to be placed in any desired position, thus adapting to the specific measurements of each manufacturer's car. In this way, customised operations can be performed at the loading and unloading points with great flexibility. In addition to this, all aspects related to the protection of automobiles have been taken into account, including side screens and rubber edging trim in order to reinforce the safety of each vehicle and avoid possible damages.

According to Luis Herrero Bernal, KAM of Asset Management and Project Manager at Transfesa Logistics, this is one of the company's largest investments in state-of-the-art rolling stock and responds to the firm commitment of the company to provide each client with the most innovative solutions on the market.
