Goods wagons or freight wagons are unpowered railway vehicles that are used for the transportation of cargo.
A variety of wagon types are in use today to handle different types of goods. But all goods wagons in a regional network typically have standardized couplers and other fittings, such as hoses for air brakes, allowing different wagon types to be assembled into trains. The 45 Ton VDA Closed Van is another type of standard freight wagon in use today.
