The software is designed to optimise traffic flows and wagon utilisation and provide Ermewa with digital analytics to improve repair depot cycle times and implement a condition-based maintenance programme using Amsted Digital’s onboard gateways and wireless sensors.

Amsted Digital says one of the benefits of its platform is its Supply Chain Visibility (SCV) software, which has been developed around ITSS standards. SCV software includes features such as cycle and route analysis, predictive estimated time of arrival, and the WeatherVue application, which provides customers with information regarding rail assets that may affected by bad weather or disruptions.

“Our SCV software tools and dashboard provide new insights beyond just general track and trace and incorporate functions of artificial intelligence and machine learning that will optimise customer supply chains and allow for better, more informed decisions regarding asset movement,” says Mr John Felty, managing director of Amsted Digital Solutions.
