IoT in Freight Rail: How to Go Beyond Track and Trace

13 December 2022

About the webinar:

From a technical point of view, a lot has happened since the beginnings of rail freight transport around two hundred years ago. Driven by digitization, numerous innovations have been introduced in the industry, especially in recent years. Classic track and trace applications are now standard in freight transport. Companies collect a lot of valuable data through which they could actually profit much more than is currently the case. For example, position data is collected, but the logical linking of data to real added value for operations often falls by the wayside.

In this context, technical progress in the areas of Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine Learning enables many interesting uses, some of which could be implemented with relatively little effort. In this webinar, we will talk about use cases based on intelligent data analysis that go far beyond classic track and trace. And there is even more to it: Since valuable resources can be saved, not only your business benefits, but also our environment.

Target audience:

  • Freight rail operators
  • Logistics companies
  • Rental services in the freight rail sector
  • Anyone interested in IoT technology in rail


  • Why data is the new raw material in rail freight transport
  • Rail Insight as your "ticket" to the world of the Internet of Things
  • Advanced logistics solutions, predictive applications and more
  • What sets A1 Digital apart?

Your benefit:

Learn how you can increase fleet productivity and reduce downtime
Learn which advanced IoT applications can be implemented as "low-hanging fruits" with relatively little effort
Get valuable ideas and inspiration for your business
Help protect the environment by saving valuable resources
