FREIGHT

FROM A YEAR OF RAIL
TO THE FUTURE OF FREIGHT

The European Union Commission has declared 2021 the “Year of Rail”.  As a part of the “Smart Mobility Strategy” the EU Green Deal calls for a substantial shift to rail, aiming at 50% rail freight increase by 2030 and 100% increase by 2050.

It makes perfect sense as the rail freight can achieve climate neutrality without the need for any additional infrastructure. At the same time, it produces 16 times less carbon pollution than road transport and is much more efficient in terms of space and productivity – with a single freight equivalent to the volume carried by 150 semi-trailer trucks.

At Lucchini RS we are proud to contribute to the freight railway industry and support safe and sustainable mobility.

SMARTSET® CBM REINVENTED

SMARTSET® Condition Based Maintenance tools, powered by the Starcrack algorithms, help to optimize freight inspection intervals and grant savings for ECMs without compromising safety. Smartset® sensors detect the stress levels of the axle, offering a real-time picture of the wheelset safety and warning of the potential critical locations along the track.

Powered by Starcrack algorithm, the sensor monitors wheelset load spectra and estimates the optimal service NDT inspection intervals.

SUSTAINABILITY
FOR A BETTER FUTURE

Our Factory is situated in the heart of Italy, surrounded by mountains and blue waters of the Lago d’Iseo. Every day we are reminded of the pristine beauty and fragility of nature and of our responsibility to protect it for the future generations.

Driven by the goal to reduce our carbon footprint, we’ve developed a GREEN ID. Green ID is the innovative solution to provide the real carbon footprint of our products “from cradle to cradle”. Through a science-based tool that meets international recognised standard, Lucchini RS is able to monitor, quantify, report the emissions actually associated with its products. Putting the real CO2 impact of our products and components in numbers easy to understand allows us to act upon our choices, adjust and accelerate environmental initiatives, playing a concrete role to protect and save our environment.
