HSH Freight Wagons

HSH has a wide selection of freight wagons - covered vans, flats, tanks and various hoppers, mostly bogie types. A number of these were built locally at the Shkodër Wagon Works. Others are of European standard design and are UIC-registered for international traffic. There are also second-hand hoppers from Germany (DB) and France (SNCF).

The fleet once totalled 2,550 wagons, but only 450 remain in service. In 2002, the total number was given as 834, but not all of these remain in service.
