SMART-RAIL will improve the freight rail services offered to shippers, focussing on five key performance indicators: reliability, lead time, costs, flexibility and visibility. To this end, the project will develop a set of innovative measures, introduce working business and governance models for cooperation between different stakeholders and design, test and improve business, operational and technical solutions in three Living Labs. The project expects to create a mental shift of the rail sector towards client-oriented and supply chain focussed solutions. Panteia will lead the project initialisation and one Living Lab and will participate in the other two Living labs as well as contribute to several other tasks. The project will last for the next three years bringing together various stakeholders from the private and public sector.
