types of railway transport
For delivery of goods by rail, we use the container type wagons, silos, tanks and loading docks. The first are used to deliver the greater part of the goods-zaplaceni in the package and without, large and composite. Depending on the volume of cargo and its type, we select containers of different sizes-3 or 5-ton. For the transport of perishable foodstuffs are also used refrigerated and insulated cars. Hoppers are used to transport bulk cargo in tanks of liquid cargo. The platform is organized primarily for the carriage of equipment: agricultural, military, road, utility, and transport of any other species. Design of freight platforms requires fixtures to hold the cargo in transit and protect it from external conditions with the use of canopies and lids.
