We would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
A new version of TRACS Flow was launched in November 2018 with the next version planned for May 2019.
The coverage area for the Triona distance calculation service now includes Finland. This has been made possible by the inclusion of data from DigiRoad in Finland, which comprises the complete Finnish road network and its restrictions for heavy goods traffic amd us making it available for route calculation in the distance calculation service. Now you can seamlessly calculate routes and distances for your vehicle (with height, weight, and length parameters) in the Norway-Sweden-Finland area.
Triona Days in Sweden is in its second year. This time with participants from many organizations within the transport and logistics sectors. Triona Days 2018 was incredibly productive and successful! That’s the conclusion we came to after seeing the feedback from participants.
In the beginning of April Triona started the process to recruit a new CTO, a modern self-reliant leader to take responsibility for the development of the Triona group’s work tools and processes for system development. The result of that process is that Anna Mårsell was chosen to take on the role, something which we are very pleased about.
Q3 dagen was held in Gothenburg on 15th November. Triona participated with Mats Bayard making a presentation on digitalization trends in the logistic and transport sectors.
Lasset, Triona’s cloud service for procurement and load booking, was upgraded in October. The most important news concerns further information sharing between client, supplier, terminals, and ultimately the customer for the container bookings.
Triona has been chosen as supplier for the development of a new IT system for RS Trommelservice AS. The solution aims to replace manual processes so that the business can expand their digital transformation.
The Swedish Transport Administration’s multi-year pilot project will evaluate a more reliable and modern system for the measurement, delivery, and analysis of friction data. Increased digitalization and utilization of modern technology from multiple sources (vehicle) will increase reliability as well as enable continuous measurement of the entire road network.
In October, in parallel with the takeover of operational activities from LiveArena, we welcomed two new employees to the Triona group. In doing this Triona takes over responsibility for LiveArena’s azure based operations.
Triona has set up operations in Gothenburg during October. The office is located in Lindholmen, in a cluster of organizations working with among other things the automotive industry, telematics, and ITS.
November 20th 2018 we call for a statutory steering committee meeting and a workshop to discuss the future development of OpenTNF.
Following the acquisition of Safe Control Infra AS in Spring 2018 Triona has now also acquired Safe Control documentation system AS and its SINUS.bk product. SINUS.bk is a web application that fits well with Triona’s current product portfolio. The product is based on rules developed in a Nordic partnership, so there are therefore good possibilities to win new customers for this product in Sweden and Finland.
Triona has developed and maintained the current Ragn-Sells mobile order application (MOA) since 2012. Now we have been entrusted to start work on the next generation MOA and simultaneously develop better support for Ragn-Sells’ haulage contractors.
Safe Control Infra AS was acquired by Triona earlier this year. The SINUS.Infra product family which is a good match for Triona’s product portfolio was included in the acquisition. Now the sale of SINUS products has increased.
Triona has received an assignment from SDC to develop a new solution for editing road data which is used among other things in SDC’s “Krönt vägval” service.
Within the framework of its programme sCORE (Systems for Clas Ohlson Retail Efficiency) Clas Ohlson has released Triona’s transport data platform (TDP) into production.
What do companies, municipalities, and public authorities do to protect people from terrorist attacks where large vehicle-ramming is involved? Given the terrorist attacks in recent years this is something which is increasingly important to consider. In Spring 2018, Triona initiated a Batchelor thesis with Mittuniversitetet in Sweden where they studied how companies, municipalities, and public authorities can solve this problem, how much they know about Blockchain and Geo-fence, and if there is a need to improve the protection by implementing systems that combine Blockchain and Geo-fence to what we call GeoBlockchain.
TNE version 3.3 is now released. Version 3.3 contains mainly new or improved functionality to streamline the supply of data from TNE; among other things a new module called TNE Replication. The module enables an updated (replicated) copy of a TNE database to be created. The copy can be a full copy, a subset, simplified or refined data in the TNE database. A possible area of application is for instance when displaying transport network data via a web-based map service (WMS) or data used to create reports and statistics.
A new major version of Transport Routing Engine (TRE) is ready for release. This version includes functionality to apply elevation data from external sources (topographic data) to road data which is missing elevation data, routing on expanded networks as well as the option to calculate routes across several data sources which are automatically consolidated over the borders. This gives better possibilities to find the best route for among other things heavy and long vehicles for cross border transportation.
Triona, together with Euroskilt, will deliver smart traffic signs for the Borealis pilot project at the Norwegian Public Roads Administration. The delivery is part of a research and development project which is being carried out on a 40 km long stretch of road along the E8 in Skibotndalen.
A new version of TRACS Flow was launched in May with the next version planned for November 2018.
As part of the strategy for digitalizing its order process Artic Asfalt has selected TRACS Flow for its order management system. By using TRACS Flow the order process and information flow between the offices and operational teams will be simpler and more efficient.
From an environmental perspective the EU wants to promote railway traffic and to make this possible railway operators are required to provide information about their services. The current lack of available plant information for e.g. terminals, industrial railways, marshalling yards, makes the planning process for railway traffic services more difficult.
The OpenTNF seminar took place on 2nd May 2018 with nearly 30 participants from organizations active in the transport infrastructure, mapping, automotive, and IT industries.
Triona have signed a contract with the Norwegian Public Roads Administration (NPRA) to upgrade to TNE version 3.

Alltransport are now using distance information from Triona’s distance calculation service for transport assignments managed in the TRACS Flow transport system. The distance information forms the basis for pricing and helps when making route choices.
Triona’s product Triona Roadwork Assistant (TRA) is being used by more and more actors who work with traffic controls and diversions at roadworks. Some of the most recent customers are: Mesta, BMO Elektro, Securitas, Nokas, Ramudden, Relacom, Veidekke, and BetonmastHæhre.
More and more companies offering journey planning services are using Triona’s product Transport Routing Engine. The most recent customers are based in the Netherlands and Luxemburg where TRE is delivered together with HaCon’s product HAFAS.

On 2nd May 2018 we will hold a seminar to discuss the future development of OpenTNF, to which you are warmly invited.
SDC has signed an agreement with Triona to upgrade to Transport Network Engine 3 (TNE 3). The upgrade will be done in phases during 2018. The benefits are shorter lead times, reduced costs, and increased quality in SDC’s work with the production of the dataset, which is the basis for among other things SDC’s “Krönt vägval” service.
