The Lohr System

The innovation comes from a simple idea: to put trucks on rails to save on long transit journeys and to overcome the obstacles placed on the road by men and nature.

Target market for standard semi-trailers

In Europe, most of the semi-trailers are not compatible with conventional combined transport. The LOHR system is specially designed for horizontal loading of standard semi-trailers.

Thanks to its efficiency in the smallest European rail gauges, the LOHR UIC wagon is the only wagon that can carry standard unaccompanied semi-trailers up to 4m high on the French, Spanish, Portuguese and Franco-Italian Alps networks.
- Blue line "lines accessible to 4m high semi-trailers with classic pocket wagons and LOHR UIC".
- Red line: "lines accessible to 4m high semi-trailers on LOHR UIC wagons".
- Dotted red line: "Lines accessible to 4m high semi-trailers on the LOHR UIC wagon after detailed examination or minor work".


A Complement to Combined Transport

Compatibility with vertical loading/unloading in existing traditional combined transport terminals.
