Keeping processes on the right track

Globalization, which involves the free movement of goods and people and worldwide competition, presents great challenges for transportation companies. Efficient logistics are the deciding factor in remaining successful in this industry.
The key is to ensure maximum availability of transport means and utilize infrastructure optimally, flexibly and according to the needs of the market. Customer requirements in terms of security, reliability, distance and timing must also be met.

Avoiding idle times

For bus companies and freight carriers, time is money, as they say, and idle times equal losses. Therefore, the goal is to minimize downtime through ongoing maintenance and increase vehicle availability.
With intelligent information processes, maintenance work can be optimally aligned to the specific requirements and usage patterns of the individual vehicle.

Using infrastructure effectively

For rail companies, optimizing capacity means utilizing existing rail lines as efficiently as possible.
Intelligent transportation planning increases transport volume and creates room for additional services while reducing resource and energy consumption.

Example: GRIPS

GRIPS (Global Realtime Information Processing Solution) lets you link, manage and publish information. Feedback from the service organization is automatically incorporated via dynamic processes and made available to information users in real time.
Dynamic maintenance planning analyzes vehicle data, probabilities, labor values and other parameters automatically so previously scheduled breaks can be utilized for maintenance work in order to increase the availability of the fleet. Realtime information processing increases the quality of situation-specific communication between man and machine.
