Our railcar selection menu just got bigger with the latest addition of our grain railcars, Tagnpps. We are delighted to announce that we are introducing this new railcar type with a strong partnership. Our company welcomes the collaboration with ÖBB Rail Cargo Group, a valued customer across Europe.
In preparation to meet upcoming demands, we are in the process of adding more than 350 new grain railcars to our fleet, with the first client handover taking place mid-January.
Johannes Friess, Business Unit Manager at GATX Rail Europe said, “We’re starting the new year with a strong addition to our fleet, both in quality as well as in quantity. With this addition, our customers can transport grain, an essential food item, safely and sustainably year round.”
Reinhold Pölzl, Business Unit Manager at ÖBB Rail Cargo Group added, “We have been looking forward to GATX Rail Europe expanding its fleet to include grain railcars as the demand for the Tagnpps railcar type keeps growing across the continent. It is always our goal to anticipate and deliver customer demands, and in GATX Rail Europe, we have found a strong partner with very similar values.”
With an experience-based design paired with GATX’s eye-catching lime green paint and state-of-the-art telematics and sensor devices, the new railcar is THE market standard for grain transport. We have introduced the new grain railcars in two different sizes to fulfill different delivery types. Our Tagnpps grain railcars have two possible dimensions, 95 and 103 cubic meters, resulting in different car lengths and weight to best meet the customers’ specific loading, transport, and unloading requirements.
Railcar enthusiasts will have the opportunity to explore the grain railcar’s specific attributes and features at the Munich 2023 Transport & Logistics fair in May.
