HAMBURG: May 2019. Eurogate Intermodal (EGIM), the Hamburg-based international service provider for intermodal container transport, has introduced an updated version of its TRoad app.
First launched in March 2015, it simplifies route planning for local transport in and around the Port of Hamburg. The app communicates directly with the driver’s smartphone via push messages and assigns trips to them.
The updated version of TRoad simplifies the scheduling and control of truck transport with an automated algorithm that calculates the most efficient transport solution for each order based on past journeys and the current traffic situation.
EGIM says it can now make optimum use of the slot booking system at the Port of Hamburg while increasing its efficiency.
TRoad was first developed to improve internal processes at EGIM. Due to its potential to increase the efficiency of transport processes, it is now also available to third parties via the company’s IT department.
Customers also have the option of integrating their data flows directly into the EGIM system via digital interfaces explained Lars Hedderich, managing director of EGIM. “With TRoad, we offer our partners a complete digital package that incorporates all transport processes and creates synergies. These more efficient processes create a win-win situation – for EGIM, freight forwarders and drivers. With the new TRoad, EGIM is once again consolidating its position as a driver of digitisation in combined transport.”
