Leasing Company Dessa Buys UWC Flat Cars

United Wagon Company (UWC) and leasing company Dessa have signed an agreement for the supply of a batch of new generation flat cars for the transportation of timber. UWC will deliver the 60-foot rolling stock by the end of May 2020.

As a result of this agreement Dessa will have a fleet of 65 units from the Tikhvin plant. The flat car model is 13-6895 and has a loading capacity of 72.5t and a body volume of 155 cubic metres. Thanks to the loading length of 18.85m as well as other technical features these flat cars are eligible for the short wheelbase tariff, while being able to accommodate up to 40 percent more freight compared to similar market models.

An optimised design reduces space inefficiencies, meaning the flat cars can be loaded without a freight gap.
