Romanian freight rail operator E-P Rail selects Nexxiot as digitization partner
E-P Rail, a Romanian freight rail operator, has selected Switzerland-based logistics digitization company Nexxiot for providing cloud-based data analytics services to its fleet of locomotives and railcars.
Over the coming months, the Swiss IoT company will start the deployment of its onboard sensor technology, which will help E-P Rail to come up with new and innovative services for its customers by leveraging AI-powered analytics.
Through the partnership, Nexxiot and E-P Rail are said to be advancing the concept of “TradeTech,” which reimagines the capabilities of global supply chains with the help of digitization.
Stefan Kalmund — Nexxiot CEO said: “It is an exciting moment for both companies. Nexxiot has evolved rapidly from an innovative young IoT company to an industry leader in TradeTech. With deep analytics to process and extract meaning and value from Big Data using algorithms and the latest machine learning techniques.”
Nexxiot will supply around 1,100 gateway devices called Globehoppers to the Romanian freight rail operator in the coming months for digitizing the entire railcar fleet.
Apart from that, E-P Rail will leverage Nexxiot’s software which sorts, cleans, and analyzes data.
Nexxiot’s dedicated logistics cloud processes big data gathered by using machine learning and algorithms. For the Romanian freight rail operator, this allows it to enhance operational performance and create new services for customers.
Radu Gabriel Gheorghiu — the owner of E-P Rail and CER Fersped, the company’s freight operator, said: “We seek out and integrate the very best solutions for our cargo customers so they feel secure and can always find the right cargo transport for their specific needs, whatever their requirements may be.
“We believe strongly in digital technologies and want to remain at the forefront of our sector by driving innovation. Nexxiot’s sensor gateways, cloud-based software and analytics will help us to achieve our current mission objectives.”
