Sheffield digital transport specialist on track for growth with extended GB Railfreight deal
A South Yorkshire digital transport solutions provider has secured a three-year contract with one of the country’s largest rail freight companies.
Sheffield tech specialist 3Squared has today announced that it has secured a contract with GB Railfreight for renewed and expanded use of its RailSmart software platform.
Based at Fountain Precinct in the centre of the city, 3Squared specialises in software to support the operations, safety and compliance of transportation companies.
The three-year contract marks the third renewal of the partnership between 3Squared and GB Railfreight which has continued to develop over more than half a decade.
Tim Jones, managing director of 3Squared, commented: “We are delighted to be working with GB Railfreight for another three years.
“This renewal solidifies a fantastic and successful partnership. This long-term renewal provides both parties with a strong platform to continue working together towards achieving an improved railway.
“This investment from GB Railfreight is a significant demonstration of its commitments to digitalisation. This is more pertinent than ever considering the current challenges that our industry faces at present. It is also testament to the value and benefits our RailSmart platform delivers for operations when implemented correctly.”
Alfredo Giangregorio, head of IT at GB Railfreight, added: “GB Railfreight first engaged with 3Squared back in 2014 with the introduction of its Railsmart EDS (Employee Development System), and they have been instrumental in partnering with us to deliver our digital roadmap over the last six years.
“Our latest collaboration, the award winning Railsmart RCM (Remote Condition Monitoring) provides us real time locomotive telemetry and alerts, allowing our Control, Engineering and Operations teams greater asset and resource management.
“I look forward to further collaboration with 3Squared in the coming years, not only benefiting GB Railfreight but also the wider rail freight community.”
