Alstom launches marketplace for train parts and commodities
Alstom is launching an online marketplace dedicated to the railway sector. Revealed on the second day of trade fair Innotrans in Berlin, it has been designed as an efficient platform to both promote and get access to a broader choice of products and services for the railway sector.
The platform is called StationOne and is the first of its kind, according to the manufacturer. Built on principles of simplicity, speed and security, it aims to bring additional fluidity to the supply chain of mobility professionals by facilitating the identification of parts, the making of orders, and organisation of deliveries, the company explained.
Parts and commodities
StationOne proposes parts and commodities for mobility, with a specialisation in all areas of the rail sector, including trains, infrastructure, depots and stations. Parts include among other wheels, bearings, motors, suspensions, cables, screws, cameras, depot tools, personal protection equipment and services such as installation, repair, overhaul, training, and technical advisory services, Alstom described.
“We are very proud to propose to mobility professionals to connect to a world first marketplace in the rail sector. For the first time in our industry, StationOne will facilitate operators’ procurement process and will allow all different vendors to access worldwide customers through a single online platform”, said Didier Bohin, StationOne President.” StationOne is now open for vendors and it will go live for customers in November 2018.
