Sažetak
A widely known fact is that the wish for higher profit in all human activities tends to be often related to highly negative influences to the environment. However, there are some examples where the wish to obtain higher profits, and the continual market competition result in positive environment influ-ences. These positive influences are a result of one of the basic profit increase method – cost reduction by process efficiency optimisation. For freight railroad transportation, every unnecessarily transported own weight kilogram is a direct cost. One example of transport cost reduction is a reduction of freight wagon tare weight, without disturbing other wagon characteristics. With tare weight reduction, comes the increase in useful payload of the wagon, since the total weight (tare weight + load weight) is predefined. In that way, a reduction in transport cost per weight of the load is accomplished i.e. the initial intention of cost reduction is accomplished. From environment preservation point of view, it is now possible to transport larger amount of load with same amount of energy used, i.e. it can be said that by using new (lighter) wagons in railroad freight transport, it is possible to transport the same amount of load with less energy consumed. This paper shows the savings accomplished by using modern wagons, on example of Falns wagon produced in Duro Dakovic Special Vehicles.
