Managing Director of Ermewa SA and his point of view about SMART ASSETS.

Popular RAILTALKS talkshow held in Berlin came up with an important topic for railway industry -  SMART ASSETS, where top managers and experts from the field took part and discussed their point of view. asked a well-known personality in the wagon rental business, Mr. Peter Reinshagen, Managing Director of Ermewa SA- what it means exactly for him a SMART ASSET. He declared that for him and his company the smart asset simply means, that they always know where each wagon is, to know if the wagon is loaded or empty, how many kilometers it runs, and if this wagon has been running without braking or how much braking has been used.

"Why do we need to know all of this?", he continues.  "Because this is a requirement for ECM to identify the actual usage of the wagon and predict needed maintenance. This is really important for us as an ECM certified wagon keeper - to have smart assets that helps us to improve our operations," he added.
