Making transports more flexible: FastTrack now has flat wagons at Senftenberg and Hagen, too

Ad-hoc rail freight transport orders can now also make use of flat wagons. Starting now, VTG’s FastTrack service – already established at other central locations – is also on offer at the Senftenberg and Hagen Gbf (freight terminal) rail nodes. One set of five flat (Rens) wagons is now available at each of these stations and can be booked online round the clock to handle transport orders.

“FastTrack is something different,” says Thomas Dittmann, Head of Digital Products at VTG. “Besides adding to the attractive locations we serve, we have now also added flat wagons to the container carriers already available for our premium service. Customers can book them digitally on traigo at short notice.” 

The Rens wagon is a four-axle flat wagon with side flaps and a system of stanchions. Extremely stable, it is designed to carry heavy goods, products for the steel industry and prefabricated parts. Rens wagons are thus ideal to transport bulk consignments and building materials for track construction. 

Online bookings via traigo in Hamburg
In the shape of FastTrack, VTG now also provides block trains with 90’ container carriers for ad-hoc transport assignments from and to the Port of Hamburg. www.traigo.com bundles VTG’s digital rail freight offerings. Here, customers can book a block train with a capacity of 88 TEU at any time of day or night. All 22 90’ container carriers are on call on the site of the Hamburg Port Authority and ready for ad-hoc assignments. Rail thus provides a fast and simple option to deal with peak loads. 

Broad spectrum of digital offerings
VTG is constantly expanding its premium FastTrack service, with further new facilities planned at key German rail nodes in 2023. One aim of this low-threshold service is for VTG to tap new customer groups and get the more flexible, on-demand use of freight wagons established on the market.
