IONX, Ermewa Group cooperate on telematics

IONX LLC, an Amsted Rail Company, and European asset management company Ermewa Group have executed a preliminary cooperation agreement, which includes the supply and purchase of telematics solutions for the different Ermewa group portfolio of companies, the companies said.

This cooperation will help further differentiate Ermewa Group as a leading-edge logistics provider by digitizing their various service offerings to their customers.
