The RailRunner®-System: Flexible, economic, environmentally friendly and quiet
Reduction of railway noise on high-traffic routes
Construction measures like noise barriers or tunnels can only be applied locally. Though, if noise is fought at its source – the train itself – noise dies down generally where a modern train system replaces an older one.
After certification of the US-tested technology in Europe, RailRunner® can actively help residents in the Middle Rhine Valley with a future-oriented system to improve their home comfort.
RailRunner® is a system for combined transport in which HGV trailers are coupled directly onto a train, using special bogies with pneumatic suspension, and not as previously loaded onto pocket wagons. It has decisive advantages over wagon-based approaches with regard to capital-investment and running costs, flexibility, energy saving and, last but not least – through its pioneering design construction – low noise emissions.
Why RailRunner is quieter
RailRunner® bogies have self-steering axis, pneumatic suspension and shock absorbers. By this means the friction forces between wheel and line, and thus the noise which they emit, is reduced, particularly on curves. In addition, a disc brake ensures that the running surface of the wheel is not abrased through braking and thus is always optimally smooth. Noise reduction on smooth rails (regular maintenance/cleaning of the rail surface on the network operator’s part provided) is approximately 15 dB. Even mechanical vibration and secondary airborne noise in its impact on surrounding buildings will be reduced.
Why RailRunner is more economic
Due to its coupling technology, in RailRunner the distances between the units are considerably shorter. This means that on average between 8 and 12 more loading units can be transported in one train; in total, fewer trains need to be run. By abandoning wagons as railway rolling stock, 10 t in weight – and thus traction power – are saved per unit. To this must be added improved aerodynamics because the units lie more closely together in their sequence.
RailRunner® Technology: Future orientated and environment friendly
≥20 % Payload
RailRunner® has the lowest tare weight per train: Tare weight per load unit is 9.8 t lower when compared to pocket car or 21.3 t lower than CargoBeamer.
30 % less wear
RailRunner®’s rail bogie has self-steering axis with lower wheel to track friction forces and 30 % less wheel wear and lower wear of rail track.
RailRunner® creates less wind resistance because of the reduced distance between its load units when connected on rail and saves 3–5 % in traction energy.
RailRunner® bogies are air suspended with lower vertical and horizontal dynamic forces. This reduces vibration and vertical jolts. Further 2–3 % energy is saved.
A RailRunner® train with 49 load units reduces the CO2-emission by 7,000 t per year (compared to trucks) when operating 6 days per week over 1.000 km.
Disc brakes, air suspension and selfsteering axis reduce the noise level by additional 5 dB below today’s standards applicable in 2020.

|Gomultimodal designed campaign „Dreaming of GigaLiner?“ for the RailRunner Europe GmbH
Focus on high-performance and innovative rail technologies
The use of long HGVs currently dominates the debate on transport policy in Europe. Once again the potential high performance of rail, given the stronger haulage and greater utility of modern rail technologies, is drowned out in the discussion.
As part of the project objectives to the successful adaptation of its bimodal RailRunner technology in Europe designed Gomultimodal a campaign entitled
"Dreaming of GigaLiner?"
Its aim is to spotlight more strongly the potential of innovative RailRunner technologies in Europe.
At the same time as the campaign is launched, RailRunner Europe's English internet site (www.railrunnereurope.com) will be up and running, which was also developed by Gomultimodal. A sound-free presentation video in seven different European languages (Danish, German, English, French, Polish, Swedish and Spanish) explains and demonstrates the benefits of bimodal technology. Further languages will follow.
We see a pioneering future and ready acceptance particularly in the system's well-developed capacity for collaboration. "Rail-goods traffic in Europe can also reach the flexibility of the HGV with the aid of innovative technologies in combined rail and road transport", says Gerhard Oswald, managing partner of GOMULTIMODAL GmbH.
Dear customers and business partners,

GOMULTIMODAL accompanied Railrunner NA Inc. entering the market in Europe
From analysis to planning; The formation of RailRunner Europe GmbH i.G.‘ in Hamburg officially launched the company‘s implementation of its new innovative rail technology in Europe.
RailRunner‘s bi-modal system includes several new technical developments, which have been adapted for the European market with the help of the experienced and well-known engineer Wolfgang Graaff. The new elements of the rail bogie design for freight transport include air suspension, articulated axles, hy-draulic damping similar to that used in road transport, disc brakes, forklift pockets and a bogie-integrated ramp as well as locking and securing system for a fast „Drive-on/Drive-off“ train assembly. These innova-tions are expected to increase the acceptance of combined transport of semitrailers and other road vehi-cles in the intermodal market in Europe.

Further, on 3 and 4 July 2014 the Dorint Park Hotel Bremen was the venue for the eighth Bremen Logistics Conference 2014. Organized by the VIA BREMEN Foundation, the focus of the event was on the World Cup host Brazil. Under the general theme of "Game rules – strategy – tactics: football meets logistics", discussion covered such topics as relations with the South American country as a major trading partner of Germany, and particularly of Bremen as a maritime logistics centre. This was the first year in which GOMULTIMODAL appeared as an exhibitor. In its capacity as a partner of GfK - GeoMarketing GmbH; GOMULTIMODAL showed how the South American market can be made transparent with the aid of GeoMarketing. Use RegioGraph software, too, by means of which you can visualize maps precise with road and street locations etc. and discover new cross-continental markets.
GOMULTIMODAL advises 'ContainerConnect'
'ContainerConnect' – new Aschaffenburg-Mainz inland-waterway service boosts transport connections from and to the seaports
Aschaffenburg / Mainz, 20 January 2014 – Boosting the service for the Rhine-Main region and customers through collaboration. Under this motto, TCA - Trimodales Containerterminal Aschaffenburg GmbH, Frankenbach Container Service GmbH and IGS Intermodal Container Logistics GmbH are joining up to work together. 'ContainerConnect' is the name of the new inland-waterway service between the container terminals of Aschaffenburg am Main (TCA) and Mainz am Rhein (FCT), which are operated jointly by IGS and Frankenbach. Trade and industry in the Rhine-Main area will benefit from the combined power of these joint partners: the ship and rail services operated by the Frankenbach Group to Mainz and the ZARA ports of Zeebrugge, Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Antwerp, and by IGS from Aschaffenburg to the German seaports of Bremerhaven und Hamburg. Synergies in production will bring the joint partners a better competitive position.
In its launch phase, from February 2014, 'ContainerConnect' will link the container terminals of Aschaffenburg and Mainz, with one return journey a week. In this way in future both terminals will be connected with the ZARA ports and with the German seaports. It is planned to increase the service to two return journeys a week shortly. Trucking and container management will also benefit from the joint venture. This will improve the competitive position of both locations in the Rhine-Main region.
"There is strong demand for seaport-hinterland transport in the Rhine-Main region, and competition is correspondingly fierce", says Alexander Ochs, in charge of intermodal services at the Bayernhafen Group and managing director of TCA Trimodaler Containerterminal Aschaffenburg GmbH. "If you can offer trimodality, regular services and flexible empty-container management, you will score. We can do all this as a result of our collaboration with the Frankenbach Group and IGS. 'ContainerConnect' will provide a cross-link between the two container terminals in Aschaffenburg and Mainz and the two powerful ship and rail operators, Frankenbach Group and IGS."
"Through 'ContainerConnect' we shall link the two major German terminals at Aschaffenburg and Mainz with the existing routes to and from the German and ZARA seaports. In this way, as a result of our collaboration with the Frankenbach Group, we shall be able to offer our customers a cost-efficient logistics solution with maximum flexibility", says Bernd Trepte, managing director of IGS Intermodal Container Logistics GmbH.
Ernst Frankenbach says of the collaborative venture: "Because our terminal on the Main estuary in Mainz am Rhein is so well positioned, we expect from the collaboration with IGS and TCA, Aschaffenburg, a greater variety of products for firms in trade and industry within the metropolitan Rhine-Main region through an expansion of the seaport connections available, and a further improvement to empty-container management for our customers."
