Web news, March 2017:
Green Cargo launches a new IT system, PICit, encompassing the company’s entire domestic rail traffic in Norway. The launch began with the Alnabru — Trondheim railway route in mid-March. Green Cargo now has standardized, digital working methods for bookings to deliveries that facilitate status updates for customers’ freight wagons and units. A key component of the launch is that Green Cargo can now offer both online and EDI bookings including track & trace.
“In response to customer demands for Bane NOR, formerly Jernbaneverket, and Green Cargo to modernize our procedures, we chose a digital solution with PICit to replace our previous procedures based on Excel. Our new IT system provides an improved interface for online and EDI bookings with a track & trace system that shows the location status of our customers’ units in the transportation chain. Bane NOR’s requirements included a more reliable system that facilitates the traceability of our rail freight, and which we can now ensure,” says Helena Wetterwik, Senior Project Manager and Project Leader at Green Cargo.
The IT system will compile all transportation and freight data and make it accessible for all parties in the transportation chain — from booking, planning trains, matching train capacity, terminal handling services, invoicing and follow-up. It will manage and control the information flow from the moment the goods leave the sender until their arrival at the recipient.
“This development project has been particularly successful thanks to the excellent collaboration between Green Cargo and PICit. Every procedure, from bookings, storage and terminal operations, disposition and operation of rail transportation to invoicing is now supported by a system in which PICit’s modules have been integrated in real-time into one single Software as a Service solution. Over and above the internal operative and administrative advantages, the system also integrates with other systems, which is an additional gain for Green Cargo, its customers and their operating environment. We are very proud that this system is now operational and we look forward to continuing the positive partnership with Green Cargo,” says Henrik Højen Andersen, CEO of PICit.
All the personnel — forklift operators, train drivers and administrative staff in Norway now use the new system. Green Cargo’s customers also receive a short demo on how to make bookings and follow status updates.
“The greatest impacts and gains from using PICit for Green Cargo is that we can provide our customers with online and EDI bookings including track & trace, and that it provides us with better internal control,” Helena Wetterwik concludes.

CMP and PICit in new collaboration agreement
Copenhagen Malmö Port, CMP, and PICit are entering into a new agreement whereby PICit will supply the PIC TOS logistics system to CMP.
”We are delighted to be able to announce the new agreement with CMP. We have wanted to supply PIC TOS to CMP for some time as it is of major significance to our mutual customers, who will benefit greatly from the agreement. PICit and CMP have already worked closely together in connection with the implementation of SOLAS / VGM at CMP. I am eagerly looking forward to continuing to develop this excellent partnership”, says PICit A/S’s CEO Henrik Højen Andersen.
The fundamental idea behind PIC TOS is to collect all information about transports/loads and make it available for all parties in the transport chain.
”It is important for CMP to find a supplier and a system which links together our processes and those of our customers. We know from experience that PICit meets the high level of requirements that CMP places on professionalism, quality and speed. They have detailed knowledge of both our operations and those of our customers, as well as of the prevailing conditions for the container operation in Scandinavia. This means that PICit has great understanding of how we want to work”, says Jacob Fogh, Terminal manager, Port & Terminal Operations at CMP in Copenhagen.
”The project to implement PIC TOS is already under way, the plan is to go live in late November 2016. CMP and PICit will together set a more specific date in early November. A large number of parties are affected by a TOS implementation, and it is important that we have an effective transition from the implementation project to it becoming operational so that it satisfies all parties involved”, Henrik Højen Andersen concludes.
