Prototype History:
The DB ordered from 1998 over 200 container wagons Sgkkms 689. The wagons were purchased specifically for the transport of over 3m high jumbo swap bodies. The loading area has therefore been lowered to allow transport of the containers in international traffic. The cars are in operation with one or two swap bodies, one or two 20-foot containers or a single 40-foot Loaded container.

As per UIC classification, Sgkkms stands for:
S: Special flat wagon with bogies
g: For containers up to 60 feet
kk: Maximum load on class C route: 50 t ≤ m < 60 t
m: Loading length: 15 m ≤ l < 18 m
s: Permitted in trains up to 100 km/h

Deutsche Bahn AG (abbreviated as DB, DB AG or DBAG) is a German railway company. Headquartered in Berlin, it is a private joint-stock company (AG), with the Federal Republic of Germany being its single shareholder. Deutsche Bahn describes itself as the second-largest transport company in the world, after the German postal and logistics company Deutsche Post / DHL, and is the largest railway operator and infrastructure owner in Europe. It carries about two billion passengers each year.

Deutsche Bahn (literally "German Railway" in German) came into existence in 1994 as the successor to the former state railways of Germany, the Deutsche Bundesbahn ("German Federal Railway") of West Germany and the Deutsche Reichsbahn ("German Empire Railway") of East Germany. It also gained ownership of former railway assets in West Berlin held by the Verwaltung des ehemaligen Reichsbahnvermögens (Administration of the Former Reichsbahn Assets).
