Automated route planning for Hupac

Switzerland’s Hupac will use data from its Nexiot rail car monitoring system to automate route planning and traffic management.

Hupac is already using Nexiot’s self-sustaining sensors on rail wagons to provide real-time data on location, impact events, border crossings and mileage every five minutes. The intermodal operator now plans to fully integrate Nexiot’s software solution into its in-house cargo management system and leverage that data to predict delays, route out journeys and manage traffic.

“We began working with Nexiot two years ago when we applied the smart sensors to 1,000 of our intermodal wagons,” said Aldo Puglisi, responsible for Digitalisation and Business Processes Reengineering at Hupac Intermodal. “When we began to analyse the data generated by the sensors in collaboration with Nexiot, we realized that it could be used to identify and predict weak spots in the supply chain, helping us make more informed planning decisions in an optimal way.”

Nexiot's portfolio combines data analytics and ultra-low-power sensor technology.

After a trial late last year Hupac is now aiming for a complete integration with Nexiot’s digitisation solution, which would allow many of its existing planing processes to be automated. “This is exciting because fewer manual entries imply fewer errors and the information can also be shared with our partners to make the entire supply chain process more transparent and efficient,” said Puglisi.

For Nexiot, which was founded in 2015 as a spin-off from the technical university ETH Zurich, the announcement is an important step in demonstrating how its customers can derive value from telemetry data. “Nexiot is providing its customers with the highest level of transparency across the supply chain, which enables them to differentiate their offering, increase efficiencies and unlock additional revenue potential,” said Marcel Scheurer, Chief Commercial Officer at Nexiot.

“Our distinctly collaborative integration approach and operational industry experience help our customers to extract the maximum value out of the technical solution.”
