TRAXENS Digital Freight Train Honored as « Coup De Cœur » By ERCI Innovation Awards IoT Based Solution Presented At InnoTrans 2018
TRAXENS today announced that ERCI Eurail Clusters has named TRAXENS DIGITAL FREIGHT TRAIN, Europe's first Freight Train to use an innovative IoT-based system allowing digitalization of operations, the winner of their « Coup de Cœur » Innovation Award. The prize has been given to the company at the InnoTrans 2018 tradeshow in Berlin.
Initially launched with Fret SNCF, the TRAXENS DIGITAL FREIGHT TRAIN solution is based on smart devices capable of communicating with each other using wireless digital network. TRAXENS solution goes beyond smart wagons to connect the entire train offering new high-value-added services.
Inherited from the Shipping Industry, TRAXENS DIGITAL FREIGHT TRAIN has been designed to work worldwide and manage any type of asset (e.g., Dry or Reefer container, wagon, trailer) which means that rail freight can be connected to the rest of the supplier chain anywhere, to explore and leverage door-to-door multimodal applications.
« This industry recognition is a major milestone for us. We have achieved to design and implement with our partner SNCF Logistics such a solution in a two-year timeframe, which has never been experienced in the industry. We are looking forward to extending the solution worldwide, said Florence Delalande, Rail Business Unit Director at TRAXENS.
Dirk-Ulrich Krüger, Spokesperson of the European Railway Clusters Initiative, comments: « We are thrilled to recognize next-generation innovation in the railway industry, and that’s why TRAXENS has earned this award from ERCI Eurail Clusters. Some of the best solutions, come from these kinds of forward-thinking players who think outside of the box. »
The DIGITAL FREIGHT TRAIN innovation enables the stakeholders of the railway ecosystem to share benefits and costs:
Railway undertakings optimise their wagon fleet and streamline operations.
Shippers geolocate their shipments in real-time anywhere around the world and receive alerts when their shipment arrives at key locations
Wagon keepers can use preventive and predictive maintenance based on hard facts (accurate mileage tracking, information on abnormal shocks, brake and axle monitoring).
Customized services are possible: remote control, door opening, temperature and humidity monitoring.
