The loading gauge is the vehicle gauge that a load must not exceed. Compliance with the loading gauge must be checked on a straight track. Restrictions on the width of the load must be taken into account when negotiating curves.
The "measured" handling of transports also works across national borders.
The loading gauge of the German railways also corresponds to that of the railways in Albania, Austria, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Greece, Hungary, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macedonia, the Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Syria and Turkey, among others. In countries like France, Italy or Switzerland, the loading gauges are smaller. Our experts are at your disposal with a comprehensive loading consultancy service to give you customised advice.
You can find detailed information in the UIC Loading Guidelines and, if you have any further questions, your account manager will be happy to help.
