SŽ-Tovorni promet gets its 100th Innowagon

At SŽ-Tovorni promet we always put the expectations of our customers first, as we are aware that reliable and quality transport services are a vital part of their business. That is why we are modernising our cargo wagons fleet.

On Friday, 14th of September, we officially took over the one hundredth wagon with the innovative RockTainer system. The universal wagons, by using different components, enable the transport of various types of cargo. The new wagons, on which containers for transporting bulk cargo are mounted, bring about higher quality of transports. The unloading is much faster than with the existing older wagons. On Sggrrs wagon with two containers has a load capacity exceeding the capacity of 2 older Tadds wagons. Their implementation means larger net weight of trains, a better utilisation of the equipment, less trains for the transport of the same goods, and less shunting in the port of Koper and with our customers. This will enable SŽ-Tovorni promet to adapt to the demands of the market more quickly and to enhance the company's competitiveness.

The guests of the event, which took place at the Ljubljana container terminal, were greeted by the adcisor to the director general of SLovenske železnice, Milan Jelenc, the director od SŽ-Tovorni promet, Melita Rozman Dacar, and the CEO of Innofreight, which developed the RockTainer concept, Peter Wanek-Pusset. They emphasized the importance of the good cooperation between Slovenske železnice and Innofreight, which resulted in the new wagon system, which will be used by SŽ-Tovorni promet.

The acrobatic group Dunking Devils showed the guests an innovative ways of using the new wagons, and impressed all the guests.
