Our ultralight and unique wagon chassis provide the foundation for building a fully flexible wagon fleet that can be used for maximum efficiency today and in the future. With ADOR's Modular System, a costly and regulated wagon chassis is continuously operated, while the load carrier can be changed to meet changing needs.
As a result of the flexibility in load carrier choice, transshipment and 'the last mile' on the road are also possible, as well as transshipment of goods where railway gauges diverge. ADOR's Modular System takes your wagon investment to a new level. It increases the possibility of taking market shares from road transports, regardless of whether you are a wagon lessor, operator, or user.

Modular system chassis: keep it rolling
As a wagon lessor, anxiety builds when occupancy rates drop and wagons remain parked. With Kiruna Wagon's Modular System, it is possible to have more load carriers than chassis in your fleet. In this way, a flexible fleet is created, where the capital-intensive chassis gets full occupancy while several low-cost load carriers remain standing in anticipation of the next customer. The system also limits the need for costly stabling on rail tracks.
Our Modular System was born from the knowledge that 80 to 90 percent of the cost of a wagon relates to the chassis, with its running gear, coupler, brake equipment, and standard requirements. In contrast, the load carrier, which usually determines the use of the wagon for its entire life span, stands for only 10 to 20 percent. With several load carriers per chassis, your wagon fleet can be reset for different uses in a few minutes or hours, depending on whether you choose a fully flexible or semi-flexible system.
Modular system flexibility
Our ultralight chassis with a central drawbar can, through minimum effort, be converted to a regular container wagon for work in block trains in standardized systems. The buffer and screw coupler interface can be used for all load carriers, for example, bulk, timber, and liquid bulk.
To facilitate efficient and flexible rail and intermodal operations, the load carrier can be easily transferred between rail chassis made for different track gauges and from trains to road trucks and ships.
