IONX and Ermewa Group cooperate on telematics

IONX LLC, an Amsted Rail Company, and European asset management company Ermewa Group announced this month that they have executed a preliminary cooperation agreement, which includes the supply and purchase of telematics solutions for the different Ermewa group portfolio of companies. This cooperation will help further differentiate Ermewa Group as a logistics provider by digitizing their various service offerings to their customers.

This project includes IONX telematics equipment, proprietary wireless sensors, and its Rail Supply Chain Visibility (RSCV) software application. This integrated telematics platform delivers the benefits of advanced supply chain data science and analytics to keepers and wagon operators. Further, it will be deployed on many other unpowered assets, not just railcar wagons, improving overall asset utilization and reliability.

Mr. David Zindo, Chief Executive Officer, Ermewa Group, shared in a statement, “Ermewa is focused on delivering exceptional customer responsiveness while moving the supply chain offerings forward by leveraging digital technology, which is a key part of Ermewa’s strategy.” Mr. Zindo went on to state, “Our evaluation of the various telematics alternatives across the market, largely driven by customer feedback, lead us to the decision to cooperate with IONX. The ability to provide supply chain efficiency, improved asset utilization, and lower overall operating costs are very important to our customers. The IONX solution is a flexible platform that can be tailored to meet the unique needs of our customers, and more importantly, assist in achieving their supply chain objectives.”
