Predictive analytics to optimise the rail freight supply chain
By Frederick Ronse (Ovinto) & Tim Mertens (Evonik)


Rail cargo emits 9 times less CO2 than comparable road transport. An increase of 4% extra via rail freight would imply 9% less road transport, and hence would have a considerable impact on dealing with the congestion and mobility problems. Getting rail and intermodal freight more efficient, deserves consequently focus. A digital approach to optimise the rail and intermodal freight supply chain, can contribute to make this shift.
