State-of-the-art fleet of railway wagons
In its transport operations, IGS Intermodal has been using state-of-the-art, low-noise container wagons for many years now. Their brakes are equipped with composite brake pads, and the proportion of vehicles that have been gradually retrofitted with such “whisper brakes” has regularly exceeded legal requirements and is well above the industry average. This has led to a noticeable reduction in noise emissions both while moving and braking.
In addition, IGS intermodal continually seeks to ensure a mixture of different wagon types that meets all needs. By regularly controlling capacity utilisation and coordinating the deployed fleet of wagons with the load unit mix (i.e. length and weight) for each route on a daily basis, IGS Intermodal can make the best possible use of its capacities and therefore also of its resources.
