IVU.rail at Transdev Sweden
Transdev Sverige AB, the Swedish branch of the global transport company Transdev, uses the specialised standard software IVU.rail to plan all rail franchises’ trains since December 2016.
Transdev Sverige is one of Sweden’s largest transport companies and has multiple subsidiaries across the entire country. Among others, this includes the long distance train connection Snälltåget, which runs from Åre via Stockholm to Malmö, and even operates as far as Berlin in summer. IVU.rail was implemented for the planning and dispatch of all of Transdev Sverige’s trains, on time for the 2016 timetable change.
IVU.rail makes it possible for planners in Sweden to create efficient timetables, vehicle workings and run schedules. Automatic suggestions and a freely configurable rule system accelerate planning. In the process, the system takes service intervals and train units into account, as well as track and depot capacities. Dispatchers receive all important information about the current operating situation, and can therefore react swiftly to disruptions.
“We have continually expanded the number of our connections in recent years,” said Petra Lagerkvist, Head of IT at Transdev Sverige AB. “With IVU.rail we are optimally prepared for the continued growth of our network and the increasing complexity of planning.”
“We are linked to Transdev Germany through our long-term positive collaborative work and we are very much looking forward to enhancing this connection with the contract from Transdev Sverige,” said Robert Mulder, sales director at IVU Traffic Technologies AG. “This sales success underscores the efficiency of our system and significantly strengthens our position in Scandinavia.”
2015, the largest Swedish rail company, SJ, ordered IVU.rail for the planning and dispatching of all of its trains and employees. In addition, MTR Pendeltågen AB, a subsidiary of the Hong Kong MTR Corporation, opted for IVU’s solution to be used with the Stockholm suburban railway in 2016.
