Last week we received and ran the first 16 new ‘Bigger Box Wagons’ for CEMEX rail journeys.The new larger wagons offer us a 20% increase on our current wagons and will be soon followed by another 20. This will mean that 50% of our box wagons will be these higher capacity spec.
They are the first step in a commitment by DB Cargo to move to new higher capacity wagons across our whole fleet. This means we can either move more material to crucial rail depots to provide more precious rocks for our customers, or we can run the same amount on fewer services. Either way it offers a significant CO2 saving and is a great benefit to our Environmental and financial balance sheet.
