DB Cargo and SNCF Fret push on rail freight transport’s digitisation
In 2016 DB Cargo started working on the topic of digitisation of rail freight transport in the amspire Digital Lab located close to the Frankfurt airport.
New technologies like the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence as well as predictive maintenance automate business processes and therefore enable traffics to be managed in a better way. As of today, thousands of freight wagons as well as 1,200 traction units are digitally connected.
In order to prepare the rail industry for future challenges and ensure that digital topics are used Europe-wide our partner network is further expanded permanently. A joint deed poll was signed by DB Cargo´s Richard Lutz and SNCF´s Guillaume Pepy on October 19 2018 in Frankfurt. Main goal of the cooperation is the expansion of the amspire Lab’s activities and the further integration of solutions to digitise and automate rail freight transport.
