RZD Holding is working to create a unified information system which combines different modes of transport


Yevgeny Charkin, the Director of Information Technologies at Russian Railways, has announced that the RZD Holding is working to create a unified information system which will combine different modes of transport.

He made his announcement at the International Railway Business Forum "1520 Strategic Partnership" during a discussion on the development of digital technologies in transport on 7 June 2017.

"We want to make the RZD Holding a hub that does not compete with competitors, but, on the contrary, includes all the possible modes of transport in a common system for the convenience of the client," said Yevgeny Charkin.

According to the Director of IT, at the moment the Holding's companies are increasing the proportion of logistics services, developing intermodal transport and involving road transport.

"The Company is actively developing mobile applications and mastering modern mechanisms for alerting customers about freight transportation through messengers," said Yevgeny Charkin. "Our strategic goal is to strive for a unified information space."

Charkin noted that in the field of traffic management, Russian Railways is moving towards smart management systems. This will automatically create an optimal train timetable. Driverless trains are now in the development stage, in particular for the Moscow Central Ring.

He also said that in addition, digital technologies are being introduced to monitor the state of the infrastructure, including the integration of video monitoring systems for the state of the track used by high-speed trains and monitoring systems for track geometry cars and fault detectors.

"We need to analyse the full amount of information that we accumulate to make for a more qualitative approach in operating our infrastructure," said Yevgeny Charkin.

Russian Railways is also carrying out extensive work to unify the national electronic document management systems, which cover more than 10 countries.

"Today, we are actively looking at the creation of an electronic transit corridor from China to Europe. We are building technology in such a way that it would be more profitable for the client to use railway services, so that it would be faster and cheaper," summed up Yevgeny Charkin.
