Rail Freight Meetings in spotlight at SITL Paris 2015
Rail Freight Meetings in spotlight at SITL Paris 2015
With workshops, a showroom and work areas across a space of 300 m², the Rail Freight Meetings will constitute one of the key innovations at SITL Paris 2015, which will be taking place from 31 March to 2 April in Paris (France). Innovative players such as Herta France, SNCF Freight and Agenia are looking forward to this key event. Under the aegis of France’s Secretary of State for Transport, the Rail Freight Meetings reflect the measures entrusted to the Association of Freight Transport Users (or AUTF, in French) following the ministerial conferences held with respect to the revival of rail freight in France.
The aim is to have a business dialogue at the service of growth in the rail industry, and, more particularly, to match supply and demand in the field of rail freight and combined road-rail transport by means of business meetings between shippers and all those involved in the rail-industry value chain.
The three case studies below illustrate the scope and interest of the Rail Freight Meetings due to take place at SITL Paris 2015, from 31 March to 2 April of this year.
CASE STUDY 1: HERTA FRANCE
"We would like to use rail freight and combined road-rail but we do not find that the shoe fits,” says Marc Bernard, Transport & Supply Chain Projects Manager for Herta France — a comment which reflects the difficulty faced by shippers when evaluating current rail and multimodal offerings.
"Traffic volumes and the will to deploy these alternative solutions exist,” points out Christian Rose, Executive Officer at AUTF, who bases his comment on an audit carried out among purchasing managers. "Though they lack visibility in terms of capacity and rail operations, compared to the very dynamic road possibilities.”
A subsidiary of the Nestlé Group, Herta France operates factories in Arras (northern France) and Strasbourg (eastern France) that process 95,000 tonnes of food products per year. Using controlled-temperature storage, the goods are sent daily to two logistical hubs — one located in Ile-de-France (i.e. the Paris Region) and the other in the Lyons region — before being sent on to supply the retail trade.
"This just-in-time logistics process, today, is done 100% by road. On the Arras-Lyons link, for example, we use up to 12 refrigerated trucks per day,” laments Marc Bernard. From the agricultural producer through to the consumer, Herta France’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) targets mean, in practice, that the company must actively seek sustainable organisations that reduce its carbon footprint in relation to all the links in its supply chain.
"Implemented in the choice of raw materials, production methodology, packaging, etc., our social-responsibility plan also covers our out-bound logistics. This is the reason why we are looking for rail and multimodal solutions linked to our retail clients,” explains Marc Bernard.
With this aim in mind, Herta France will be at the Rail Freight Meetings: "This event is a time-benefit accelerator, which will help us to achieve our ambition to lower our distribution carbon footprint. Herta wants to use rail and combined freight,” says Marc Bernard, who has high expectations of the trade show.
At the Rail Freight Meetings, the manufacturer hopes to better understand how the rail sector operates. "We want to develop links with the professionals who can best respond to our logistics needs right through to the final customer, and also discover all the available multimodal innovations,” explains Marc Bernard.
CASE STUDY 2: SNCF FREIGHT Rail services have evolved over the last decade and have, in many ways, been revitalised. "Deregulation has put the clients and their requirements at the heart of the issue. Competition and the effects of the [financial] crisis have led to a rethink of the service and internal organisation of SNCF Freight,” says Olivier Juban, Director of SNCF, the State-owned French railway operator.
It is in this context that the Rail Freight Meetings are an excellent occasion for SNCF Freight to meet procurement managers in order to explain current industry developments and, also, how the railway sector can respond to logistics challenges.
Shared services, Multi-Lots/Multi-Clients options, long trains, combined rail-road initiatives, and ‘rail highways’ are various aspects of the range of solutions developed by SNCF Freight, which demonstrate the company’s efficiency and relevance. "Driven by teams managing production and sales, the solutions are configured to respond to the complex logistics challenge from purchasers within a framework of sustainable collaboration,” explains Olivier Juban.
CASE STUDY 3: AGENIA
Agenia is a subsidiary of NGE, a multi-expertise group in the field of public works with a turnover of €1.5 billion. Agenia works with shippers, local communities and logistics hubs in order to develop sound rail-transport links and multimodal solutions.
“The expertise of Agenia is wide-ranging: from the construction and management of rail infrastructure through to developing rail-freight offerings, and including the management of hubs and network maintenance,” says Michel Colombié, CEO.
On this basis, Agenia is the partner of Moulins Communauté in order to develop jointly the LOGIPARC 03 rail centre, in Moulins (central France).
The logistics of a rail network go well beyond mere point-to-point traffic management. Indeed, Agenia’s added-value proposition comes from its ability to interlink connected services: handling, door-to-door transport, rail-road combined transport, connections to inland networks as well as ports, and so on.
“These extended services that include the management of infrastructures are essential in order to guarantee a premium service quality which responds to the challenges of the modern supply chain. At LOGIPARC 03, Agenia has developed this offering in partnership with Transports Terrancle and Eurorail,” explains Michel Colombié.
These are concrete examples of the potential offered by the pooling of rail-sector skills and multimodal complementarities — common themes of the Rail Freight Meetings at SITL Paris 2015, to be held in Paris (France) between 31 March and 2 April of this year.

ARELIS unveils hybrid telecoms/TV transmission station at MWC 2015
ARELIS Group, together with its subsidiary, Thomson Broadcast, a global leader in transmission systems, will be present at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2015, in Barcelona (Spain). At the trade show, the company will unveil its new, green, hybrid telecoms/TV transmission station within the ZENITTHYS project, as well as a completely autonomous base station it has developed.
ARELIS will welcome industry visitors and journalists at Mobile World Congress (MWC) from 2 to 5 March of this year, in Barcelona (Spain). ARELIS will have a stand on the French Pavilion, in Hall 5 (Booth B 61 and Booth B 41).
ARELIS will present its Zero Energy Network In Telecom and Television Hybrid System (ZENITTHYS) project, which features a hybrid transmission solution intended to reduce the environmental impact of telecoms networks’ massive deployments, and the company’s latest solar pilot, which features complete autonomy.
As part of the new ZENITTHYS project — a green, hybrid telecoms/TV transmission station — ARELIS and Thomson Broadcast, its subsidiary, have a long-standing commitment to telecoms and broadcast convergence, as a way to offer hybrid solutions.
This convergence has accelerated with the gradual sale of frequencies in the 800MHz band and, soon, in the 700MHz band. The telecoms industry continues to play a key role in Europe, in spite of falling revenues, increased regulation, and a difficult economic climate. Telecoms operators are expected to invest close to €30 billion annually in next-generation mobile networks between now and 2020.
However, the rise in investment has been hampered by various factors. On the one hand, incomes have tended to drop, while the explosion in data traffic over telecoms networks would require massive investment, and, on the other hand, to guarantee good signal quality and wide coverage, macro base-station antennas are being installed in the centre of cities.
With ZENITTHYS, ARELIS makes it possible to minimize the environmental and societal impact of these two trends. The impact that the proximity of telecoms antennas has on residents may be reduced by splitting the transmission function away from the reception function. Indeed, with ZENITTHYS, the telecoms-reception side is separated from the transmission function and remains close to the houses, but with minimized visual and electromagnetic impact for the inhabitants, while the transmission side, for its part, is achieved via remote sites.
One of the aims of ZENITTHYS is to demonstrate, in specific situations, the capacity to reduce electromagnetic exposure to 0.6V/m with the same Quality of Service. The environmental impact is also reduced by using a mix of renewable energies to power the hybrid telecoms/broadcast station.
ARELIS’ strategy for 2015 and beyond is focused on medium-power energy systems specifically adapted to telecoms deployment, based on the company’s in-house expertise in energy conversion, high-efficiency amplifiers, and energy-management systems. Along with renewable energies, ARELIS is focusing on energy storage and power cells in order to offer a range of off-grid systems and solutions.
At WMC 2015, ARELIS will present its new solar autonomous-system pilot, which is a solar off-grid solution. This renewable-energy functional pilot is the first medium-power off-grid solution integrating transmission capacity. For each piece of equipment integrated into the station, heat dissipation and power consumption have been optimised, and the carbon footprint has been minimised accordingly. To ensure system reliability, the built-in Battery Management System (BMS) can be remotely monitored: it not only controls charge and discharge, but also many energy sources, thanks to an automatic-management functionality.
From an off-grid-system point of view, logistics for the replenishment are then strongly reduced. In turn, this provides operators with a drop-and-forget solution instead of costly replenishment operations in inaccessible or dangerous sites, where the price of a barrel of oil (including delivery costs) may escalate quickly. With telecoms operators’ energy-related operational expenditure representing up to 30% of global expenditure, ARELIS’ autonomous station is an ideal, environmentally friendly solution, which can meet specific customer requirements.
“We aim at proposing an energy-storage and autonomy solution with kW prices which may compete successfully with polluting, pure genset. Our R&D department is focusing on increasing the energy efficiency of [base] stations, while reducing their operational costs. These systems, adaptable to both networks, will ease the telecoms/broadcast convergence and allow their transmission site sharing. Our system does control the entire system and offers telecoms operators sustainable solutions to power their off-grid stations with renewable-energy sources,” says Pascal Veillat, Chairman of ARELIS Group.
ARELIS and the ZENITTHYS Project Leader will welcome visitors and journalists on the French Pavilion (Hall 5, Booth B 61 and B 41) at World Mobile Congress (MWC), in Barcelona (Spain), between 2 and 5 March of this year.
To set up a meeting, please contact the Press Office of the French Trade Commission (Business France) in London.

LEDIXIS, an innovator in the LED lighting-devices sector seeking distributors in the UK, will be exhibiting its latest technology at the BVE 2015 trade show, taking place at EXCEL, in London (UK), from 24 to 26 February. LEDIXIS will present EXALUX BRIKS, part of the company’s EXALUX range — a novel lighting solution for the broadcasting, movie-making and photographic industries. At the BVE 2015 trade show, LEDIXIS will showcase EXALUX BRIKS. Bruno Lavolée, the company’s founder and CEO, explains: “BRIKS is going to revolutionise the use for lighting instruments in a range of sectors, from broadcasting and films to photography. BRIKS is both smaller and brighter than our competitors’ offerings.”
BRIKS is an attractive solution in the field of modular lighting instruments and is covered by the EXALUX trademark; specialist company LEDIXIS has been distributing BRIKS since November 2014. BRIKS is suited to various uses in broadcasting, cinematography and photography.
LEDIXIS will showcase BRIKS at the BVE 2015 trade show, which is taking place at the EXCEL exhibition centre, in the Docklands district of London (UK), between 24 and 26 February of this year. The company will be on Stand R-18. LEDIXIS is keen to expand across Europe and, more particularly, is seeking to meet potential partners and distributors for the British market at the trade show.
BRIKS is based on a smart lighting platform combining the latest generation of LED luminescent sources with advanced processes for colorimetric, thermal and energy controls. EXALUX lighting instruments are built with high-quality components.
BRIKS are factory calibrated (Flux and CCT) to 500 lumens in order to guarantee enhanced colorimetric and photometric homogeneity, allowing users to have the right colour temperature and the right balance of the white. BRIKS units are small (90mm x 90mm x 15mm), compact, light (170g), and very powerful.
Bruno Lavolée, CEO of LEDIXIS, says: “BRIKS are very attractive also because they are customisable lighting devices. Besides, with EXALUX BRIKS, designing a customisable lighting instrument becomes childs play. To start with, users just need one BRIKS and one controller, and it is possible to connect up to 250 LED BRIKS with one controller to build small or medium-size lighting areas.”
Innovation starts with LUXIFYTM, a lighting platform specially developed for modular lighting systems. Because all the electronics are integrated into an all-in-one module, LUXIFYTM is environmentally friendly and allows for better energy efficiency; it also provides improved connectivity and light constancy. A Bluetooth-connected device makes it possible to have wireless control of all BRIKS’ features. Users can connect and run up to 20 LED BRIKS at full brightness (depending on the chosen diffuser).
“In case of breakage, you can replace the damaged unit without having to return the whole equipment to the factory. Your equipment will always be operational and you will never run out of light,” points out Bruno Lavolée. “To reveal all the creative potential of our solution, play with the light!”
BRIKS is based on five fundamental principles that benefit the user: customisation; eco-efficiency; capacities for evolution; innovation in the use of the technology; and, finally, connectivity. The product’s architecture can be adapted to various uses, giving professionals the possibility to create what is, ultimately, their own lighting device, in line with their specific needs, constraints and budgets.
The innovative solution developed by LEDIXIS also allows users to reduce the time dedicated to implementation and production, hence it ensures that users have more time to devote to what they care most about — creativity.
“LEDIXIS: a combination of passion and expertise,” is the specialist company’s motto. LEDIXIS, which is headquartered in Nantes (in Western France), was created in 2013 by Bruno Lavolée, who wanted to combine the three areas he is passionate about, i.e. photography, light, and technology.LEDIXIS designs and sells lighting precision solutions that are eco-efficient, modular, connected, and destined for the broadcasting, movie-making and photographic industries. The companys expertise is based on its multidisciplinary know-how — a specific knowledge of the customers needs in filming and photographic lighting, combined with an impressive track record in LED technology (stemming from 20 years’ experience).
LEDIXIS offers products that match customer expectations. Thanks to its R&D department, which is dedicated to creating new lighting devices, LEDIXIS will be widening its range of products throughout 2015.
LEDIXIS will be exhibiting its EXALUX range of products at BVE 2015 (Stand R-18), which will take place at EXCEL, in London (UK), from 24 to 26 February 2015. BVE is a trade fair of reference for the broadcasting industry and for audiovisual-production technology.

EBlink, a pioneer in wireless-fronthaul technology, will be present at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in March 2015, in Barcelona (Spain). The company’s FrontLink™58 system represents a technological breakthrough. EBlink provides solutions that are complementary to fibre-based fronthaul and essential to Cloud RAN and 5G architectures.
EBlink takes wireless fronthaul technology to the next level with unmatched field-proven performance. Thanks to EBlink’s solutions, operators are no longer forced to lay costly fibre runs or limit their new sites to locations served by fibre. Importantly, EBlink’s patented technology ensures that radio-access performance remains intact when using a wireless-fronthaul link.
“Our FrontLink™58 system represents a technological breakthrough, with unequalled performance: up to 7.5Gbps CPRI on a wireless link within a 70MHz bandwidth,” explains Alain Rolland, EBlink’s founder and CEO. “Tested and validated by operators worldwide, the FrontLink™ solution offers new possibilities to mobile carriers in their network deployment.”
Christian Bittar, EBlink’s co-founder and COO, says: “We expect to double this technical performance in 2015, and again the following year. Everything indicates that mobile-network architectures will rely on fronthaul links to enable the use of those technologies essential for high-speed service (Comp, Massive MIMO, etc.). Our wireless fronthaul technology was developed with this in mind.”
Analysts and major international operators now speak of wireless fronthaul as a technology that has become essential.
International mobile-telecommunications operators are moving increasingly towards centralized architectures, which are more economical and provide better performance than traditional cellular network architectures.
Already deployed in Asia, C-RAN/V-RAN/small cells networks are now gaining ground in North America and other parts of the world as well. These new architectures have spurred the development of fronthaul-type transmission infrastructures, which — as with backhaul systems — call for both fibre and wireless solutions.
Complementary to fibre-based fronthaul, EBlink’s wireless fronthaul solutions also drive a significant reduction in deployment costs: up to 40% in most scenarios.
Specifically, EBlink’s patented technology eliminates the last few hundred metres of fibre that are so costly for mobile-telecoms operators, being long and difficult to deploy.
As A rising start-up in the mobile telecoms industry, EBlink continues to build partnerships with leading industrials in order to foster technological synergies and accelerate the distribution of its solutions worldwide.
EBlink will be on Booth 5B73, in Hall 5, at MWC in Barcelona (in Spain), between 2 and 5 March of this year. About EBlink

If a given publication such as a trade magazine (to which the Press Office subscribes) goes ahead and publishes an article on the basis of this press release, we would like to be informed so as to retrieve the published material, and so as to be able to send it to our client company/entity in France (i.e. the company/entity that provided us with the information contained in the press release in the first place). We keep a printed copy of the published material in the relevant file in our office, and a second copy may infrequently be kept in a press-book that may be shown to potential clients when they visit the Press Office. Other than that, a single scanned copy is sent electronically to the client/entity in France (or, more rarely, a single printed copy is sent by post). This is important to us and to our clients. By reproducing material/content that the Press Office sends to a given publication, the recipient (i.e. the publisher and/or editor) is deemed to have agreed to the limited and legitimate use of the published material — in return and in due course — by the Press Office, as described above. If the recipient of this press release objects to the potential limited re-use of his (her) published material by the Press Office (as outlined above) in the name of his (her) copyright, the said recipient should inform the Press Office as soon as possible, and the director of the press bureau will contact the publication concerned by return of email (firstname.lastname@example.org), which will be followed up with a telephone call and/or a letter in order to try to find a compromise that would be acceptable to both parties. The Press Office seeks to comply fully and actively with copyright law in all its aspects within the United Kingdom and as per European Union laws and regulations.
Embedded images — For journalists and editors who need the pictures embedded in one of our press releases, it is very easy to retrieve them. What you need to do is as follows: within the body of the press release, left-click on the picture; this should magnify the image to a size that is directly usable; then, right-click on the magnified picture and choose the Save As function; finally, save the magnified image as a JPEG file on the hard disk of your computer, giving it the name that you wish to use in connection with the story concerned. If you have any problems with this procedure, do not hesitate to give us a ring. It is always possible for the Press Office to send you JPEG pictures as attachments in an email upon request. Thank you.
Reader responses — Please advise us of publication of this press release and continue to send reader responses to the Press Office. This is the only way we can ensure the follow-up is done efficiently.
