SBB Cargo introduces track and trace system
SBB Cargo says it is the first railfreight company in Europe to offer clients a track and trace system. Two other mobile applications simplify processes on the ramp and data integration into clients’ logistics systems.
A map of Switzerland forms the central element of the track and trace application. Coloured symbols show customers the current locations of all their shipments. The programme also provides information about wagon location, a consignment's weight and its contents.
The Swiss railfreight operator said that customers can use the information to align their follow-up processes to the expected arrival time of their goods. The company will roll out more applications during the course of the year. (ben)
