WASCOSA news

Wascosa infoletter 31 / May 2019

As provider of freight wagon systems, reliable partnerships are vital for us. They allow us to break into new territory, become more innovative and combine the best from different disciplines. Working with all parties involved, we are keen to find progressive solutions that increase productivity and functionality, improve efficiency and minimise costs.

Standardised electronic data and document exchange compliant with the VPI 08 Maintenance Guidelines benefits everyone: workshops, manufacturers, freight wagon lessees and investors. The lead article by Sternico (p. 1-3) highlights the advantages that digital interchange and standardisation offer for freight wagon use and what they mean for rail traffic safety. The new Tanpps hopper wagon with central and side discharge, developed in collaboration with our long-standing partner K+S, is another example of our successful collaboration with partners (p. 8-10). We would like to take this  opportunity to thank all our partners for their vital contributions.

We are also demonstrating how our business is built on an innovative partner concept at this year’s transport logistic trade fair. Come and visit us between the 4th and 7th of June and be surprised by our new stand design, the “Wascosa Village”. We will be there alongside our partners and co-exhibitors not only showcasing new products, but also organising joint events under the slogan “More wagons – More ideas!” (p. 4-5).

The Wascosa team looks forward to seeing you in Munich, but first we hope you enjoy reading the latest edition of our Infoletter!
