SAVVY telematics for forest products shipper

ScandFibre Logistics and its wagon partner Transwaggon have selected SAVVY Cargo Trac-I telematics units for real-time tracking of rail shipments between Sweden and the continent

Together Transwaggon and ScandFibre Logistics evaluated a number of telematics providers with respect to, among other things, tracking goods (via GPS/GNSS).

They opted for SAVVY following tests on 50 Transwaggon paper roll wagons operated in Scandfibre's latest "Rail 17" rail system traffic product. Battery drain in the cold Scandinavian countries, the accompanying risk of battery self-discharge, and the configuration flexibility of the SAVVY units were a major focus.

SAVVY provides position data in real-time along the entire route from freight wagon loading to unloading with an accuracy of up to 2m including shock detection with configurable thresholds along x, y and z axes.

At over 1000 geofences such as loading and unloading points, or switch yards, the distance up to the next 10 geofences is displayed with each position report. In addition to transmitting position data and the resulting route deviation and performance data, the system provides additional shock detection data.

A 5-year GPS Information contract was signed last November and installation of the remaining wagons (around 3000) will begin imminently.
