OnTrackRail Logistics Optimisation
OnTrack (formerly known als HaROLD) provides insight in the expected time of arrival (ETA) and terminal handling of trains by providing a shared view of accurate rail and cargo information across the entire chain.
Rotterdam is the port of choice for cargo flowing to and from Europe. Rail transport is a vital component of our extensive network of hinterland connections. It is a reliable and cost effective modality that puts nearby distribution centres and other destinations within reach. It has the added benefit of having a modest carbon footprint.
In a perfect rail chain, all parties would have access to the same accurate real-time information: such as capacity, scheduling and status information. This is currently not the case. OnTrack provides insight in the expected time of arrival (ETA) and terminal handling of trains by providing a shared view of accurate rail and cargo information across the entire chain.
How does OnTrack work
A single point of truth: All users share a single point of truth for all trains that are moving to and from the port.
Accurate information: Users get the most accurate information available such as a train’s location, destination, expected and actual time of arrival and departure, time slot and progress at the terminal.
Smart filters: Smart filters based on relevant parameters allow users to zoom in on specific information.
Real-Time Updates: Real-time progress and status updates help users adjust their operations accordingly.
Insights: Accurate information and insights offered by OnTrack allow for better operational decision-making and performance monitoring.
Logging and reporting: Various messaging, logging and reporting tools help OnTrack fit into any workflow.
The key benefits of OnTrack
OnTrack increases efficiency: Offering all users the same accurate information greatly reduces miscommunication, slack and terminal stay.
OnTrack benefits the entire rail chain: Sharing information helps all rail operators, traction providers, deep-sea and inland terminals make better operational decisions.
OnTrack provides valuable insights: Combining the most accurate information available from different sources provides valuable insights into the reliability and performance of the rail network and help utilise all available capacity, personnel and assets much more effectively.
PORT FORWARD: Solutions for the digital port.
We have been developing digital solutions and automating our processes since the nineties. Now we would also like to help other ports increase their business value and introduce transparency, speed, efficiency and safety in their activities and supply chains.
