For companies that ship cargo by rail, the CargoRail solution provides:
- Efficiency: all processes are configured to fit the organisation’s needs, from railcar manoeuvring and shunting to the preparation of shipping documents and the initiation of customs procedures. The system makes it possible to work from any workplace, and automated operational steps reduce the chance of human error.
- Flexibility: system users perform actions within the system and input the required data. That data is used to prepare all the needed documentation (from bills of lading to logbooks) and to send automated notifications – as per the standard for both broad-gauge (SMGS) and narrow-gauge (TAF TSI) track. If integration standards or documents change, the process remains the same, only the form of the documents or messages is changed.
- Innovation: the system’s technological architecture centres on the detection and communication of incidents. The system can also integrate with mobile and IoT devices and transmit data for analytics in near real-time.
CargoRail’s functionality makes it easy to carry out and register a variety of actions related to railcars and trains – from loading to preparing bills of lading and other documents. All actions are performed in a fixed sequence as per the client’s needs, recording and authorizing each one. The system is flexible and simple to use: data only has to be entered once for all the system’s users to be able to see and use it at every step. Moreover, all the necessary information is provided in a single window, and with one click actions can be performed for one railcar, train or shipment, or for groups of them.
