Bus and coach logistics
Route IT bases its logistics concept for the bus and coach industry on open IT platforms.
Route IT supplies system support, including traffic routing systems to the coach company Björks AB, which has a contract with SJ (Swedish Rail) to provide replacement bus services all over Sweden. The contract will initially cover about 500 buses but when in full-scale operation, Route IT estimates that 1000-1500 coaches will be needed to meet the requirements in the SJ agreement. In total, around 300 coach companies will work as sub-contractors in this agreement to cover the whole country.
Route IT’s solution is based on FältCom MIIPS® Committo which is used as an IT infrastructure in the coaches for highly accessible and reliable positioning and communication. FältCom MIIPS® Committo is a robust and open IT platform to which additional services from any service provider can be connected. The terminal has several different interfaces that can be used for Intranet and Internet access, additional services such as ISA, Economical driving, etc. A powerful Device Management system enables efficient remote management of the equipment.
By using FältCom MIIPS® technology, Route IT can offer its customers a very reliable solution to which new services can easily be added in the future. The system supplies complete data that can easily be exported to most of the business administration systems on the market. Since it is based on an open interface, the system enables individual solutions for each individual company. Modules make it possible to change suppliers of individual system components, when new solutions emerge on the market.
