RAILDATA ISR (International Service Reliability)
ISR platform is an information system developed and operated by RailData. It is a common tool used by the ISR railway undertakings for concentration and exchange of information about movements of freight wagons in international traffic through a central platform. It makes it possible to track both loaded and empty freight wagons, as well as consignments across significant parts of Europe.
ISR encompasses the following functions:

  • wagon status - ISR registers the position and status of freight wagons. Railway undertakings are involved in the transportation of wagons and/or responsible for the wagon’s journey and thus, can see or obtain, key information regarding the wagons location and current activity.
  • train running - Information about movements of freight trains is stored in the RTIS database (Running Train Information System). It is used mainly for advanced wagon tracking based on the real-time position of trains while running.
  • wagon performance - ISR collects wagon performance data (km) from some railway undertakings and estimates the distance completed by wagons on behalf of other railway undertakings using their own calculation engine. Performance data is then sent to interested users and to the wagon keepers.
