Improving railfreight flows between port and terminals
To further optimise railfreight services between the port of Rotterdam (Netherlands) and the hinterland, the port authority has launched OnTrack. This device offers real-time insight into railfreight flows within the port and cargo handling at the terminals.
At present, most terminals use their own planning system and standards, and most of the relevant information is exchanged by telephone or email.
The new OnTrack application combines data of the various parties in the rail chain and enriches it with smart business algorithms. Carriers can use OnTrack to gain insight into specific freight handling operations at the terminal. (ben)
