PORTUGUESE rail freight operator Medway (formerly CP Carga) has awarded Siscog, Portugal, a contract to roll out a new scheduling and management solution for its locomotives and train crew.

The system, which will be based on Siscog’s Fleet and Crews platforms, will cover all phases of planning from strategic and long-term levels to the day-of-operation.

Crews produces long-term duty and cyclic rosters, short-term calendar schedules, and provides decision support during operations.

Fleet creates and manages vehicle schedules, taking into account parameters such as timetables, network, vehicle specifications, and operational constraints. It also deals with vehicle inspections and maintenance.
