Caminhos de Ferro Portugueses
The development and management
of ticketing solutions
Caminhos de Ferro Portugueses (CP) was set up as a State Owned Enterprise in 1975 to manage the railways in Portugal. Changes in domestic and community legislation led to the transport services and the infrastructure management being separated in 1997.
In 1999 CP chose Fujitsu to develop an On-Board Selling System for use by its Long Distance and Regional Units. Since then, Fujitsu has developed other ticketing projects, including an On-Board Selling System for CP Porto, Sales Kiosks for CP Long Distance and CP Regional and the reformulation of the basic system for long distance ticket selling and seat reservations.
Fujitsu also created the interfaces needed to enable travel agents to access CP's travel information, so that they can now sell tickets directly by accessing the necessary information using a web-based system.
