Smart-Rail has targeted the alignment of rail freight services performance with the requirements of the “new” rail freight market that should be attracted in order to achieve a modal-shift. In general terms this implies that in order to be able to compete with the road options, a reduction of logistical costs should be achieved and not only a reduction of the price paid for the rail services. A significant share of the rail related logistical costs for the user can be reduced by improvement of reliability, lead time, flexibility and visibility. Smart-Rail has focussend on:
• Contribution to a mental shift of the rail sector toward a client oriented and supply chain focus.
• Developing supply chain oriented business models for cooperation of different stakeholders.
• Development of a methodology and architecture for exchange of data/information between stakeholder.
• Establishment of three operational Continuous Improvement Tracks (CIT’s) with the purpose to identify the practical barriers and improve and test the innovative measures in a real life situation.
The H2020 project Smart-Rail is a lighthouse projects of Shift2Rail running between May 2015 and April 2018.
