Grup Feroviar Român (GFR) is introducing a brand-new Information System, the Trasa Expert app, that provides information on ideal train paths and the capacity allocated to freight trains. The innovative method is now available to users.

The design of the ideal train paths based on calculations and technological needs and the accuracy of these estimations is vital for efficient and predictable freight transport.

The inventive system was created by the digital branch of GFR and the Institute of Computing Technology (Institutul de Tehnică de Calcul – ITC), a member company of the Grampet Group.

Trasa Expert app extends the benefits of the ETA Expert application, which provides real-time estimations of trains’ arrival at destination and can be a useful tool for both transport operators and CFR SA, the Romanian railway infrastructure manager and timetable traffic planner.

Trasa Expert app is a complex diagnostic system using railway traffic information spanning over the past 3 years to generate statistical mathematical-based solutions, as well as eloquent synthetic representations of planned and real train traffic, respectively.

“As a regional leader, GFR plays a key role for Romania’s positioning within the European industry. We have been investing in innovation since 2005, constantly looking for solutions that may generate higher performance and competitiveness for all operators. 

So far, the operator has produced and applied over 20 digital solutions aimed at simplifying and streamlining operational and commercial activities

"We hope to start looking at the big picture and begin working together, as a national industry, in light of the challenges, but also the opportunities foreseen for rail freight,” Gruia Stoica, the President of the Grampet Group – Grup Feroviar Român said.

GFR continually gives manpower and financial resources for innovation and technology projects, seeking to provide clients with a customizable experience based on market demands, through unified and easy-to-use platforms.

“We have extended the GFR fully-developed portfolio of digital services with a tool that can restore the authority of the timetable, considering that rail freight transport in Romania today is often subject to change. Once again, GFR proves to be an open partner for dialogue, seeking and proposing concrete solutions aimed at improving the quality of services provided by the railway transport system to society,” Amedeo Neculcea, the Deputy General Manager of GFR said.
