Smart GigaWood Round & Sawn – new benchmark for round wood and sawn timber transport

The Smart GigaWood fleet for wood transport continues to grow. With the Smart GigaWood Round & Sawn, Innofreight has developed a wagon which is not only the most efficient for transporting round wood,  but also achieves top values for payloads when transporting sawn timber.

The adapted system features 2.5-meter-long stanchions and thus enables efficient log transport. 120 solid cubic meters of round wood can be transported by a 2×45 ft InnoWaggon with the Round & Sawn attachment – 25 percent more than conventional wagons. In the case of sawn timber, up to 191 cubic meters fit on a double wagon, which, like all Smart GigaWood systems, allows a payload of up to 144 tons.

All Innofreight superstructures focus on flexibility and customer friendliness. Since the stanchions on the Smart GigaWood Round & Sawn are bolted and not welded, customers can adjust them easily. Depending on the length of the wood, the stanchions are attached to the wagon and, if necessary, changes can be made later. The end walls on the outside also increase safety during transport.

This further development is particularly advantageous for the sawmill industry. By using the Smart GigaWood Round & Sawn, empty runs are minimized and additional train runs are saved due to the significantly higher capacity. If a wagon arrives at the sawmill with round wood, it can be loaded directly with finished sawn timber packages after unloading and deliver them.

Innofreight offers its customers in the wood industry the optimum technical solution for transport by rail.
