Rail Transport Mobility - Optimization upgrade "RTM-O upgrade" is the second stage of the project with the scope to develop a capacity management and optimization tool for "end to end (e2e) integrated rail supply chain (SC)" from the rail hub / feeder line of the consignor, to the rail hub / feeder line of the consignee.
Stage one of Rail Transport Mobility - Optimization focused on the development of a desktop demonstrator. Stage two is building on the findings of the first part and will develop a prototype in the end. The combination of the currently different IT systems and processes with the rail operator (RO) creates a unified transport information system, which results in an increase in efficiency for both companies in logistics and production. The capacities and means of production of the system are optimized. Through this first of its kind cross-enterprise-wide planning and coordination of rail logistics processes, "e2e" integrated rail logistics service for goods supply.
