JV to build ore carrying freight wagons

It is claimed that the innovative lightweight platform wagon from the two companies not only sets new standards in rail logistics in terms of flexibility and modularity, but also sets a new standard in the freight transport market.


“The TransANT opens up a new world of rail logistics for the customer,” the new joint venture firm said in a statement. “The modular platform concept enables the customer not only to load larger quantities, but also a flexible structure that adapts to their individual logistics needs.”


Series production of the TransANT has been in progress since the product was launched in autumn 2018. “Thanks to the bundled know-how of ÖBB, Voestalpine and the Voestalpine logistics subsidiary Logserv, the first prototypes for test were quickly delivered to customers,” TransANT continued.


“Since autumn 2019, the first 60 freight wagons from the TransANT product family have been successfully in use at Voestalpine for the efficient transport of domestic ore.”


ÖBB-Technische Services GmbH is a subsidiary of the ÖBB Rail Cargo Group, and Voestalpine Stahl GmbH is a company in the Steel Division of the Voestalpine Group.
