TX Logistk experiments in Sweden freight trains of the length of 838 meters

The speed of the convoy has been increased up to at 120 km/h on a 500 km route

TX Logistk, a German company of the Mercitalia group, has tested in Sweden a freight train with a length of 838 meters who made a full load journey of about 500 kilometers between Malmö and Frövi, in the province of Örebro. The train carried 48 semi-trailers and traveled at one speed up to 120 kilometers per hour.

So far, Swedish railway lines are allowed to transit of trains of a maximum length of 630 meters and the experimentation took place with the collaboration of the Trafikverket, the Swedish Infrastructure Authority transport. "An extension to 838 meters - he explained the managing director of the Swedish subsidiary TX Logistik AB, Winther Sørensen - would greatly increase capacity of transport and therefore would make rail freight transport even more more efficient and interesting for shippers».
