How Rhaetian Railway is digitizing its freight wagons

27 September 2023

Data as the key to optimization

Digitalization is playing an increasingly important role in rail freight transport. The Rhaetian Railway (Rhätische Bahn, RhB) was also looking for an innovative solution to make its logistics more efficient and sustainable. Find out how the Swiss company succeeded in doing so in the webinar.

RhB had its 2021 freight car fleet equipped with a turnkey solution from A1 Digital as part of the "GVD-IoT" project, which includes telematics devices, connectivity and secure cloud hosting in the European Exoscale Cloud. The IoT platform used is based on proven technology from Software AG.
