NETINERA CHOOSES IVU.RAIL
STANDARDISED PLANNING AND DISPATCH FOR GERMAN RAIL COMPANIES
NETINERA, a company of the Italian national railway FS, will plan and dispatch vehicles and employees of its rail companies using IVU.rail from IVU Traffic Technologies in the future. A contract in this regard has now been signed by representatives of the two companies in Berlin.
As one of the largest private public-transport companies in Germany, NETINERA operates numerous regional railways, which together account for a market share of around 5% of German regional rail passenger transport.
With 358 trains and more than 4,600 employees, the NETINERA Group covers 52 million train kilometres per year. Switching to IVU.rail will facilitate the planning and dispatch of vehicles and employees in the future.
IVU.rail provides powerful optimisation components for this, ensuring that all resources are used efficiently. In addition, extensive automation and proposal functions make planners’ work easier.
A flexible rule system also takes account of complex operational and collective wage requirements in the respective subsidiaries. In addition, a mobile employee portal incorporates staff directly in dispatch.
Integrated planning and dispatch of more than 9,000 employees
Berlin/Budapest, 7 November 2017 – The Hungarian state railway’s passenger transport subsidiary, MÁV-START Zrt., is extending its contract with Berlin-based IVU Traffic Technologies.
The rail company has been using the IVU.rail standard software for the planning and dispatch of its vehicles and employees since 2008. The system was extended last year.
As the largest subsidiary of MÁV, MÁV-START operates the majority of the passenger rail transport in Hungary with approximately 1,000 locomotives and motor units and 3,000 locomotive engineers.
The company uses the integrated standard software IVU.rail for planning and dispatch. MÁV-START has now extended its contract with IVU by a further two years, up to and including September 2019.
Furthermore, since last year the IVU solution has been used to schedule and dispatch 6,000 additional employees, including 3,000 train conductors and 3,000 stationary employees such as cashiers and safety inspectors.
