Automated Route Planning in the Works for Hupac Intermodal

Hupac Intermodal announced the upcoming implementation of Nexiot’s software solution to its in-house cargo management systems for supporting efforts managing delays, traffic, and route journeys.

“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.”

Nexiot has provided solutions for Hupac for the last two years. The
European intermodal network operator currently employs Nextiot’s self-sustaining sensors for real-time visibility from device-fitted wagons. This device provides information such as location, mileage, and border crossings every five minutes.

“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.”

Following the full integration of the digitization offered by Nexiot, Hupac will ultimately reap the benefits of optimization, information sharing with partners, time and money savings, as well as an overall reduction in risks and errors.
