Abstract [en]

Changes in the competitive environment force railways both to improve rail freight’s economies of scale in order to increase cost-efficiency and to introduce new production methods in order to enter into new market segments. The authors present conceptual outlines of new wagon designs to achieve this, a long intermodal wagon and a flat wagon for transport of semi-trailers. They apply a system perspective considering even adaptations of certain infrastructure parameters.
