Screw coupling is still today the coupling standard for freight trains in European countries. Coupling is done manually by a worker who must climb between wagons to hook and un-hook them, requiring physically exhausting manual operation in a hazardous environment.

A more efficient, sustainable and competitive rail freight system is essential to meet the needs of both climate protection and rising transport volumes. Digital automatic coupling is an enabler to create a modern and digital European railway freight transport.

Our panel of experts will discuss their experience with freight operations and how could not only increase efficiency their efficiency thanks to automation processes, but it will also ensure sufficient energy supply for telematics applications, as well as safe data communication throughout the entire train.


Among the discussion points are:

  • Making sectorial decisions on the DAC selection for Europe
  • Producing a sustainable migration plan
  • Use cases that benefit from DAC, who and why
  • Standardisation as key part of the implementation strategy
  • Next innovations and outlook to the future for more goods transported by rail
