Acquiring real-time data at the operational level within the rail industry is labour intensive and time consuming. The lack of data makes it difficult to manage and optimize rail shipments in Canada. In addition, the 1960’s technology currently used is unreliable and incomplete. Managing the rail network with this data has resulted in lost shipments, rework, and lower profitability.

This webinar will give you insight into digital supply chain platforms for rail, through the lens of the Quasar system, built by Cando Rail. 

After viewing this webinar, you'll understand

 
  • What IOT/Digitization is in the context of supply chain logistics
  • Key components of a digital supply chain optimization strategy
  • Challenges in the North American rail industry
  • Value of having a digital strategy and what big data can do for your business
