‘Flexi deck auto-wagon rake’ is the first of its kind in Indian Railways , it brings the advantages of higher capacity, flexibility & faster speed to the rail transportation of cars.
The ‘Flexi deck' rake has 20% additional capacity (318 cars) as compared to the current Second Generation twin-decker coaches (265 cars). The new rake, with its height adjustable middle-deck, is highly flexible and can transport vehicles of multiple dimensions.
The new rake can move at speed of upto 95 kmph as compared to 65 kmph -75 kmph of the existing 1st & 2nd Generation rakes.
These Flexi deck rake consisting of 27 wagons frequently come to Nidavanda, a small town near Bangalore where a loading Terminal has been setup. These wagons from Gurgaon ( Haryana) carrying a mixed load of Maruti cars including Swift, Dzire, Alto, Wagon R and Omni takes upto 5 days to reach Bangalore.
The new rake, with its height adjustable middle-deck, is highly flexible and can transport vehicles of multiple dimensions. The new rake can move at speed of up to 95 km per hour as compared to 65 km per hour of the existing rakes. It can travel between Gurgaon and Bangalore in five days as compared to seven days by road transportation. Transporting cars by new flexi deck auto-wagon rake will lead to reduction in carbon emission making it more environment friendly.
Maruti Suzuki is India's first automobile company to procure flexi deck auto-wagon rakes. It has initially procured three such rakes of 27 wagons each. These rakes will be primarily deployed in the high-volume west and south India destinations.
In the long term, the company will dispatch cars through railways to several destinations like Nagpur, Siliguri, Mumbai, Pune, Mundra, Kolkata etc. Maruti Suzuki will order more rakes to meet its growing transportation requirement.
