These impact services, productivity and safety, such as reducing repetitive and tedious tasks,” said Florence Delalande, director of the Rail Business Unit at Traxens.

This global competition, which attracted close to 30 candidates, is open to start-ups with activities in one of three categories: productivity, services or security.
The UIC Digital Awards seek to recognize the exchange of knowledge taking place between railway companies and start-ups, with the aim of opening up new perspectives on the railway sector and future mobility as a result of innovative start-ups being part of the value chain. The UIC’s philosophy to ‘share-open-connect’, particularly in digital transformation, is supported by various ecosystem players.
Traxens delivers the world's most extensive, precise and timely information about containers in transit anywhere in the world using breakthrough technology and Big Data techniques.
