Railway Wagon Transport – The Smarter Solution

Updated: Jun 24

Railway wagon Transport

Most industries, including agriculture, mining, etc. depend on the freight industry for distribution. Road transport has been the chosen mode of transport for most companies so far owing to its convenience and costs. However, the introduction of new age technology has transformed the railway wagon transport industry inside out. Today, the flexibility, price point, efficiency and timeliness offered by railway freight transport is unmatched. The technological advancements in this field have given birth to a new generation of cost and energy-efficient freight wagons that ensure high quality control. Railway cargos not only offer bigger freight size (making it more convenient for larger consignments), but also a much faster delivery. Additionally, railway transport is an environmentally friendly option as compared to road trucks.

We have developed simple yet effective end-to-end E-tracking Solutions for wagons in real-time, making rail freight the most beneficial choice for logistics companies. It enables companies to monitor wagons, improve utilization, reduce costs, improve maintenance, operations and stay notified on accidents/missing wagons through Geotagging, RFID and GPRS technology. Here’s a brief look at our solutions:

Railway Wagon Transport: Tracking, Monitoring and Reporting:

  • Uses GPS or GPRS mobile SIMs for real time data

  • Electronic device, microprocessor & transmitter/receiver device for sensor based tracking

  • Online Web portal to track in-transit, spare or delivered containers

  • Eliminates information mismatch

  • E-mail or SMS notification of unforeseen accidents

  • Enables enhanced decision making

  • Blockchain based documentation for improved security

Track Containers & Goods:

  • RFID based technology

  • Minimum 2 positions/day

  • I/O temperature sensors for quality tracking of wagons carrying milk, food items, livestock, gas or oil.

  • Kilometres calculation based on RPM gives you the true whole-life commercial return on the freight wagon.

Maintenance and Operations:

  • Contact-free generator to recharge the on-board battery when the wagon is moving

  • Stationery wagons automatically push data once a day, making the generator last a month without charging.

  • Real-time data fed into Preventative Maintenance Schedule to pre-determine needs for repair or replacement

Rail Vs Road at a glance

Railway Transport

Roadway Transport

Cheaper for long distance consignments

Economic only for intercity/short distance consignments

Freight trains carry more freight at the same time compared to road transport

Comes with cargo size limitations (cargo rules vary state-wise)

Faster mode of transport for long distances

Slower than rail over long distances

A greener option as trains trains burn less fuel per ton mile than road vehicles

Not as environmental friendly as rail
