ÖBB freight transportation relies on digitized processes along the Asia-Europe corridor


During the International Railway Congress 2019 the ÖBB Rail Cargo Group (RCG) and Digital Logistics LLC – a joint venture of Russian Railways (RZD) and the developer of digital platforms INTELLEX LLC – signed a Memorandum of Understanding in the Austrian Chamber of Commerce. The main purpose of the memorandum is to promote joint developments, standardization and digitalization of operational processes across Europe's borders. This should enable faster border processing and a shortening of end-to-end transit times.    

Digital platform
With the intention to set new standards in rail logistics with the use of state-of-the-art digitization tools, Thomas Kargl, Member of the Board of Rail Cargo Group, and Alexander Kochukov, CEO of Digital Logistics LLC, signed the Memorandum of Understanding. "This will strengthen cross-border cooperation between Europe and Russia and drive the implementation of reliable continental end-to-end logistics solutions," explains RCG Board Member Kargl. 
In particular, the Memorandum confirms the interest of both parties in ensuring a gradual transition to digital technologies in the organization of international rail freight services. In this context, a digital logistics platform is to be developed in order to be able to map transport processes digitally in the future as well as to enable electronic data exchange with regard to the planning and coordination of rail freight traffic. "The signing of the memorandum was an important step towards increasing the attractiveness of rail transports in Russia, Europe and Asia. This confirms our determination to reach a new level in international freight transportation through digitalization measures," says Kargl.
