Rail Fleet Management – SABIC

SABIC produces raw materials for the plastic industry, converting naphtha in ethylene, propylene, crude C4, and other materials. Transport of these materials goes by pipe, ship, truck, and rail. The rail operations in Europe are executed with over 400 Rail Tank Cars (RTCs). The RTCs run through a large part of Europe. 2 years ago, the RTC’s have been equipped with GPS trackers. The true potential of this data is yet to be exploited. This MSc project will focus on benefits that can be achieved by collecting/analysing the GPS data on RTCs.
