We started off 2023 with another success on the secondary market: GATX Rail Europe successfully acquired 48 Shimmnss wagons, which will contribute to the strategic growth and diversification objectives for our freight car fleet.
“The newly acquired wagons, which are equipped with tarpaulin and 7-coil cradles, are a great addition to our growing fleet of Steel Coil Flatcars,” said Clemens Aschl, Commercial Development Manager at GATX Rail Europe, who is responsible for secondary market fleet acquisitions. “Thanks to their special design, the Shimmnss wagons are ideal for the transportation of smaller steel and aluminum coil-types or wire rolls. With this latest addition, our fleet of Steel Coil Flatcars will be able to fully accommodate customers’ various coil transportation needs.”
The wagons, which will become available during the first quarter of 2023, are currently undergoing revision, including being retrofitted with LL-silent brakes, as well as a general overhaul in order to get them ready for their next use and to maximize the wagons’ technical potential.
