 Pakistan Railways has inducted high-capacity freight wagons to its fleet.

According to details, 40 high-capacity locally manufactured wagons with the help of Chinese technology have been inducted into the PR fleet.

CEO of Pakistan Railways Aamir Baloch inaugurated the induction of wagons.

The high-capacity wagons, designed as per international standards, are capable to transfer 70 tonnes load at the speed of 100 kilometer per hour.

Baloch said 820 more wagons will be inducted into the railways’ fleet by the end of FY2025-26. The production of freight wagons locally will help save the foreign reserves and increase the income by Rs9 billion yearly.
