On 3 August 2020 OVK (UWC), TransFin-M (one of Russia’s biggest leasing companies) and FT Logistik (a freight forwarding company) have signed a trilateral agreement making provisions for delivery of 200 Model 11-6874 box wagons to FT Logistik’s fleet, as well as their financing by TransFin-M. Delivery of the new batch is scheduled by the end of 2021. FT Logistic is using Tikhvin-built wagons since 2017.
The 120 km/h Model 11-6874 wagon is a universal solution for transporting both outsized lightweight and heavy small-sized freight. This is made possible through the wagon’s balanced technical specifications: a payload of 73 t, achieved by the use of bogies with a 25 t axle-load, and a bodyshell volume of 175 m3.
OVK took special care to improve the wagon usability. The size of the loading door openings has been increased compared with standard models, while the sliding doors move seamlessly on roller supports. Four loading hatches on the roof and sidewalls provide for convenient loading of bulk freight. The floor is made of corrugated steel sheeting, improving surface grip for both the freight itself and the wheels of the loading devices.
