For a while Lineas has been expanding its network throughout Europe with the Green Xpress network and we intend to keep up the pace.  TIS helps us in our objective of transforming from a traditional train provider in Belgium to a customer-oriented European Logistics provider. Many steps were already taken to optimize the Tracking and tracing services we can offer our customers. Not only as an active member of Raildata but also company wise Lineas believes that TIS is one of the most important and also low threshold tools to support the much needed innovation required in the rail sector today. We would like to advise all railway undertakings, big, small or start-up to reach out to this very useful data source and tool for tracking and tracing information. Together we can realise the modal shift!"

Gert Verstraelen - Integration Lead at Lineas

The active steering of our trains all over Europe needs a reliable system which enables professional work in daily business. TIS is currently the state-of-the-art and first choice in dispatching international trains. The delivering of data from infrastructure on-time by dint of TIS-interfaces is essential for our internal systems like Train Control Europe (Trace). The development and the improvements of TIS are done by strong interconnection between Infrastructure Managers and Railway Undertakings, using the knowledge and the experiences of both parties. This is an important factor to increase the quality of TIS. In fact, TIS becomes one of the most important basic operational tools for successful railway operations nowadays."

“TIS has become an indispensable instrument for BLS Cargo to monitor our freight trains throughout Europe. It contributes to an efficient and customer-oriented European railway market by being open for any of our partners – be they traditional state-owned companies or recently founded start-ups.“

“It is all about data – Something that has never been as important as it is today.
Nowadays we cannot afford NOT to know where our freight trains are currently running.

TIS offers an IT solution that goes beyond national borders. Reliable real time data is essential to ensure proactive and international train management, optimal customer information and detailed performance measurement.

RNE attaches great importance to incorporating the experience of Infrastructure Managers and Railway Undertakings in order to continuously develop TIS and adapt it to our needs.

In general, TIS is a very useful tool that helps us in our daily business keeping the flow of goods as fluent as possible by providing information throughout Europe.
Connecting borders, improving supply chain management – feel free to join.”
