Chemet, a railway tank manufacturer based in France and Poland, established a partnership with Nexxiot, a tech company that focuses on software development for more efficient transportation. The two companies will work together to apply Nexxiot’s technology to Chemet tanks for LPG transportation. Chemet became the first European manufacturer to commit to fully digitalizing its railway tank car offerings.

This cooperation will enable Chemet’s customers to quickly access and control the state of their containers throughout their journey. They will be in fact able to check the real-time location of the railway tanks, monitor total mileage, and shocks. In addition, customers will receive notifications in case of sudden changes in temperature. “Nexxiot’s sensors and data analytics also provide advance notice of adverse conditions, preventing greater damage and losses,” the two companies added.

Chemet focuses on serving the European tank cars market, producing annually up to 500 complete tank cars and up to 1,000 tanks for the railway industry designed for the transportation of dangerous goods for leading a range of customers, including Ermewa, Aretz, and GATX Europe.

Nexxiot has been on the frontline when it comes to applying advanced technology to the rail freight industry. For example, the company launched TradeTech in June. TradeTech helps ensure the safer and more efficient transportation of perishable goods such as food products.
