Railvis unifies European rail freight bookings

Europe’s railway cargo business is now connected by the secure Railvis platform, which gathers offers of available wagon and locomotive capacities from all over the continent in one place
The online platform for rail freight logistics connects all European rail carriers and started last month. The independent platform provides industrial and rail companies a way to find available locomotive or wagon capacities, providing time savings over traditional ordering processes thanks to complete digitalisation.
In the past, companies requiring rail services had to go through the process of finding a supplier, checking out its prices and options, and comparing everything manually. It was then necessary to communicate with each supplier by email, telephone or in person, which made a very long ordering process.
“The traditional process is very inefficient,” said Adam Froněk, director and co-founder of Czech Republic-based Railvis. “The idea of creating an independent online platform that would be as user-friendly as possible and facilitate all related communication was completely logical. We are glad that we have come up with it right now, after a long period of trying out and testing the market. Railvis will effectively link all European railway companies together, helping them in their further growth.”
Railvis says it is the first on the market to unify all available rental options for wagons and locomotives in a clear manner. This can achieve dramatic savings – orders that used to take days or even weeks can be processed within 15 minutes. Its users can thus save costs and increase productivity.
The platform was established in 2019. The Railvis team consists of experts from all over Europe with more than 16 years of experience in the field of rail freight. The aim is the complete digitalisation of the railway business and the connection of all European customers and suppliers into a single environment for more efficient supply and demand of logistics services. It has sales offices in most European countries.
