Rail Operations in daily use
In today’s world, where demand for freight transport via rail is on the rise, companies are even more challenged to prove their efficiency. Rail Operations helps to tap potentials and thus to extend the competitive edge. Using Rail Operations, you can accelerate the process of train preparation by at least 10%. We achieve this through properly maintained master data, consistent process mapping, seamless documentation and the complete integration of employees into the process. The best way to demonstrate this is with a simple use case.
As a rail transport company, you receive a customer order for the transport of various goods, including hazardous goods in accordance with RID. The order with all relevant order data is created in the system by the dispatcher and the corresponding resources are assigned.
The stakeholders, such as the train preparer, wagon master or train driver, are assigned the work processes related to the order and receive the information they need for their work in a targeted manner. All parties involved in the order can follow the process status and know exactly when it is their move.
For example, the wagon master knows when he has to carry out the technical inspection of the rail vehicles and can use the mobile solution to complete the documentation on the vehicle. The seamless documentation throughout the entire process ensures traceability on the one hand, and on the other hand it facilitates the correct and complete creation of the transport documents. After which, the train is ready to depart.
