i-Trace Project


Working Together in Rail


The ARA is working with GS1 Australia and participating organisations through the i-Trace project which is aimed at reducing costs and improving the quality of materials management processes.
Standardising the way materials in the rail industry supply chain are identified and marked will bring industry wide efficiencies for all stakeholders. It will provide the critical foundation for electronic data capture and the ability to simplify the exchange of information across operators, manufacturers, suppliers and contractors. The ARA has established a working group involving operators and suppliers who have agreed to a collaborative approach to improving inbound supply chain processes. Further information on how your organisation can take action is available here.
