The Freight Traffic Centralized Management (FTCM) of the SNCF (French National Railway) is an information service dedicated to facilitating the solution of the complex and interconnected problems connected with the transportation of freight by railway. The service has at its disposal a network of computers and terminals with which information on the location of a given railway car with a freight load is processed. The operation of this data network is described on the example of a hypothetical freight car as it goes through its rotation cycle from one expeditor to the next.
