From May 5th to the 8th, Munich-based transport logistic will open its doors again. HaCon will be exhibiting in hall 6 at stands 129 and 122: Visitors can look forward to the HaCon consultants’ EU projects and the latest developments for the Train Planning System TPS and the timetable information system HAFAS.

At stand 129, the interdisciplinary team of consultants presents its current EU projects such as SPIDER PLUS: Together with twelve partners from economy and research, HaCon develops a roadmap for a competitive and sustainable rail transport. Topics like digital networking, more efficient transport means and the ideal use of infrastructure are central elements of this visionary project. Moreover, the HaCon consultants will give account of their involvement in the TEN-T corridor studies and showcase IT solutions with a focus in freight transport. ITEC (Intermodal Terminal Eco-Efficiency Calculator), for instance, is a new tool that allows to calculate the process-specific carbon footprint and thus helps to optimize the energy consumption of terminals.

HaCon will also feature the next generation of its Train Planning System TPS that combines infrastructure, timetable and train path management and has been expanded by components for strategic planning, including the graphical display of clock-face timetables. Another highlight is the new, integrated TPS module for rolling stock rostering that was recently introduced by Israel Railways for the first time. Regarding timetable information, HaCon will present innovations within the HAFAS family (e.g. HAFAS Cargo) for both passenger and freight transport, including the latest apps for wearables such as the Apple Watch. With HAFAS Smart VMS, HaCon shows its award-winning vehicle management system that gathers real-time data in vehicles and thus generates precise delay information in passenger and freight traffic.
Stand 122 is dedicated to the R&D project ViWaS (Viable Wagonload Production Schemes) that is supported with funds from the EU’s Seventh Framework Programme and aims to strengthen single wagonload transport. HaCon as coordinator gives a thorough overview of the developments and field tests conducted within the context of the project.
