FEWER, the digital container terminal
Our application "FEWER" is a new type of terminal management software. This digitises all processes in a multimodal terminal and makes them more efficient through process optimisation. With FEWER, terminals can be managed and operated almost autonomously.
This project has been funded by the European Union and is intended to be a building block for the promotion of the rail and waterway transport modes.

Optimised depot operation
The costs increase due to long roads and unnecessary container handling. As a result, crane operators and reach stacker drivers are being instructed by mobile devices such as tablets.
With the introduction of FEWER in a test terminal in Brandenburg, savings of 60% were achieved with the necessary container movements.
The total capacity of the terminal has been increased by 29% without any renovation work.
Train or barge planning
Generate train lists /loading lists with all the data you need for timely communication with your partners at the push of a button.
Digital order entry
The customer is provided with various ways of digital order entry: Web interface, booking via EDI and CSV files. Don't waste time looking at your customers' order data.
Communication with shipowners
All necessary status messages are transmitted by the software to the carriers. As a result, depot keeping is extremely simplified, and the information is shared in real time.
Waybill – management
Save time by creating waybills on demand, which allows the processing times to be reduced to the minimum. This can dramatically increase the performance of the entire terminal.
How much does FEWER cost?
FEWER is a SaaS-Solution. You do not need your own infrastructure, such as e.g. servers.
The costs for FEWER are composed of an individual setup fee and a small variable component for container handling. This makes FEWER the perfect application for terminals that want to save high fixed costs and that want to adjust costs to the demand.
Our basic understanding is that by using the software, you save a multiple of the costs that the software costs you monthly.
