In hall B6 at stand 122, ViWaS coordinator HaCon gives an overview on the developments and field tests conducted within the context of the project. All activities aim at improving single wagonload transport and have a clear focus on last-mile operations and technical innovations.

As part of the “SwissMovers” stand in the open-air area (FGL, stand 804/1), ViWaS partners SBB Cargo and Wascosa present their modular wagon technologies developed within the project. The Timber Cassette 2.0, a new superstructure for log wood transport for Wascosa’s Flex Freight® Car, will be presented. This wagon extension is characterised by foldable stanchions. In case the Timber Cassette is not in use, it can be removed and stacked at the terminal site or on a container wagon, thus improving the overall efficiency by avoiding empty runs. Additionally, SBB Cargo shows the prototype of the Container Loading Adapter. It facilitates container (un)loading in sidings and will be deployed within the “Swiss Split” production method.
