The transition went very smoothly and I could not have asked for anything better as the new solution will now enable us to efficiently track and manage all of the railcars on our 320 mile system - Daren Geschwindt, RBMN.
JACKSONVILLE BEACH, FL (PRWEB) February 10, 2015
ShipXpress Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based software solutions for the logistics industry, announced that Reading Blue Mountain & Northern Railroad (RBMN) chose the RailSync® product suite to manage its railway logistics.
RBMN is headquartered in Port Clinton and is a privately held railroad company that serves major businesses in nine Eastern Pennsylvania counties (Berks, Bradford, Carbon, Columbia, Lackawanna, Luzerne, Northumberland, Schuylkill, and Wyoming). It operates a 320-mile regional rail system and has over 180 employees at the railroad and in related businesses. In 2014, the railroad handled 24,365 carloads which surpassed the previous record achieved in 2011, and represents a 3.2% increase in total carloads compared to 2013.
RBMN joins a steadily growing number of railroads that have adopted the ShipXpress RailSync® software solution and have found collaboration with supply chain partners more efficient as a result.
“We enjoy working with the RBMN team, who are very focused on providing a superior level of service to their customers and automating as many processes as possible. We feel we are just scratching the surface of possibilities and hope to extend our solution to handle more aspects of their business in the coming months and years,” said Charith Perera, CEO of ShipXpress.
RailSync® puts timely and critical information in front of the train crew with work orders that direct exactly which cars to pull or place at each location. RailSync® also provides fast access to hazmat information as well as tracking revenue with a highly customizable user interface that is accessible on any device.
“The past six months have been exciting as we implemented the ShipXpress RailSync® Software Suite after having used our previous transportation management system for nearly 20 years. The transition went very smoothly and I could not have asked for anything better as the new solution will now enable us to efficiently track and manage all of the railcars on our 320 mile system. It was the favorable reviews from our colleagues over at Arkansas & Missouri Railroad that played a significant factor in our decision to move to RailSync®,” said Daren Geschwindt, Assistant Vice President, Merchandise Traffic of RBMN.
