Telematics for 6,000 freight cars in Sweden
The railcar hire company Transwaggon (TWA) and Scand Fibre Logistics (SFL) equipped around 3,000 railway wagons with Savvy telematics for a pilot project that began in 2015.
The experiences were so good that another 3,000 wagons are to be fitted with the technology by May 2018. The telematics software delivers information in real time but only when it is really necessary.
Transwaggon has been providing freight cars across Europe for 52 years. SFL specialises in railfreight services for Sweden’s forest industry and the country’s largest logistics company. (ben)
