LTG Cargo brings entire planning to Vilnius by technology
LTG Cargo has partnered up with digital solutions company Ab Ovo, which will implement an integrated resource and freight carriage planning system. Companies that are able to quickly respond to changing situations mostly win the competitive struggle, the Lithuania-based rail freight company argued.
The new system will improve efficiency of LTG Cargo rolling stock, as well as the quality and accuracy of freight carriage planning. With the system, freight carriage activities can be controlled better, and enable the company to respond quicker to changes in activities, LTG explained the benefits.
Everything from Vilnius
The new system will substitute working practices, which until now, are carried out manually and on paper. With the new system, the entire planning of long-haul freight traffic and required resources will be carried out from the renewed LTG Cargo Carriage Planning Centre in Vilnius.
“We are particularly proud of this partnership with LTG Cargo, which is a major player in its region. We are impressed by the way LTG Cargo executes with precision on its data-driven strategy and we are honored to have been selected to contribute to their transformation journey as an esteemed digital partner to LTG Cargo”, said Edwin Hageman, CEO of the Ab Ovo group.
The cooperation with Ab Ovo has been planned for a five-year period with a possibility to extend it for two more years. The contract, which is valued at 6.4 million euros, delivers Ab Ovo’s managed SaaS solution for rail freight operators based on the DELMIA Quintiq platform from Dassault Systémes. It involves software and hardware, license lease, maintenance and support as well as configuration, integration creation, installation and training services as a complete turn-key solution for LTG Cargo.
LTG Cargo is currently implementing more than fifty digital transformation and robotic process automation (RPA) initiatives, by which they seek to improve efficiency of activities and increase the company’s competitiveness. Mobile apps and digital analytics tools are created for that purpose. The Ab Ovo solution is part of this continuous initiative to transform the organisation.
