Portuguese state railway will be planning in future with IVU.rail

The Portuguese state railway transports some 135 million passengers throughout the country every year. The operations involve controlling the rolling stock, drivers and on-board personnel over the entire rail network. In order to ensure efficient deployment and punctual services, a modern planning system is needed which can also reflect the country’s special requirements. Following an international call for tenders, the Portuguese state railway has now chosen IVU.rail – the planning system from IVU which has been specially developed to meet the needs of rail transport services.

“With Portugal we have been able to win another customer on the Iberian peninsula and thus strengthen our position on this interesting market,” comments a satisfied Martin Müller-Elschner, CEO of IVU Traffic Technologies AG. “The quality of our Berlin engineering is increasingly being appreciated worldwide, and this is reflected in our order book situation.”

Together with IVU’s Portuguese project partner Meticube, which also specializes in the development and implementation of process management and information systems for rail transport, IVU will by the end of the year install its systems for timetable planning, vehicle and personnel scheduling, duty roster optimisation and rolling stock deployment for the state railway. A special challenge is the integration of IVU.rail in the existing system landscape for infrastructure planning and personnel management. “By using standardised interfaces we are also able to solve such tasks,” explains Martin Müller-Elschner. “This mixture of standardisation and flexibility contributes to the worldwide success of our systems.”
