Arkema, Fret SNCF and Everysens unveiled the first results of a project aimed at improving the performance of rail-car traffic. The three entities have compared their respective data to identify areas of optimizing traffic flow. Chemicals company Arkema uses freight rail to transport nearly 4,000 insulated rail cars operated by Fret SNCF every year. However, visibility on the date and time of arrival remains limited. Arkema began working with Everysens in 2020 to manage rail logistics in real time. The data-sharing project focused on three months of data, which Fret SNCF will use to establish an action plan to reduce rail-car waiting times, according to a joint press release.
