ISR - Objectives

ISR is an information system developed and operated by RAILDATA. It is a common tool of RAILDATA railway undertakings (founded by former "national railways") for concentration and exchange information about movements of freight wagons in international traffic through a central platform. It makes possible to track both loaded and empty freight wagons and consignments across significant part of Europe.

Besides basic information about actual status and position of the wagons, ISR also offers additional information services:

  • Records and shows the wagon movement history (for about 2 months),
  • Estimates time of arrival based on experience of same past transports,
  • Calculates estimated wagon mileage (km done) based on different sources,
  • Integrates transport descriptions from commercial systems (from ORFEUS),
  • Monitors wagons during the train run (using train movement information from TIS),
  • Offers manual input of information (community cloud for data capturing).

The ISR members use the ISR data for several purposes, mainly for:

  • Customer information
  • Wagon Tracking
  • Trip Analysis
  • Transport tracking (as forwarding, transit or destination railway undertaking)
  • Wagon Usage Planing
  • Wagon performance measurement (estimated km done)
  • Single wagon performance analysis (via X-Rail)

International Service Reliability (ISR) is the key factor to be competitive on the market and trustworthy for the customer. It enables both visible customer service improvement and significant cost savings.

 

ISR is also measure for implementation of the TSI TAF regulation (technical specification for interoperability relating to the telematics applications for freight subsystem of the rail system in the European Union). Two important TAF functions are covered by the ISR application for its members: 

  • WIMO (Wagon and Intermodal Unit Operational Database)
  • Train Running (function on the railway undertaking side
