Joint forces to create digital freight train
SNCF Logistics and startup Traxens are forming a partnership in France due to start a brand new generation of freight trains in 2017. They will be equipped with connected units, providing new services to all railfreight players. The project acts as a catalyst for the implementation of more modern, effective and safe railfreight.
The partnership marks the end of a year of research, common work and tests to develop services suitable for railfreight based on a new connected unit solution.
The digital innovation will be operational in H2/2017 and will improve the performance and appeal of the railway in the freight transport industry. (ben)
