History: These wagons have two loading levels and can be loaded with 9 to 14 mid-size cars, depending on the design. The wagons are suitable for Europe-wide transport. For loading and unloading a ramp with a height of approx. 115/120 cm is planned. The upper loading levels can be lowered for all types of construction, at least on the outer sides as ramps.

The type 551 is designed for the transport of cars, off-road vehicles, vans and vans. So that a type-pure transport as well as a mixed loading of the mentioned types of vehicles in the different loading dimensions is possible, the upper loading level can be finely adjusted.

To ensure sufficient free space during loading and unloading, depending on the respective transport position, the upper loading level can be adapted both to the ends of the wagon and in the middle of the wagon.

The loading and unloading of the upper loading level on top of the top level is possible by lowering the upper loading level at the ends of the car from all intermediate positions. In addition, it is possible to transport very tall vehicles to lower the upper loading level completely.
