Share Article

The Aberdeen & Rockfish Railroad Company implemented ShipXpress’ RailSync® product suite to manage its railway logistics. RailSync® is designed exclusively to address the requirements of short-line and regional railroads.

ShipXpress Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based software solutions for the logistics industry, announced that the Aberdeen & Rockfish Railroad Company (A&R) has chosen the RailSync product suite to manage its railway logistics.

A&R was incorporated in 1892 by John Blue and is still owned by the Blue family. It is a short-line railroad transportation company serving customers in Cumberland, Hoke, and Moore Counties in North Carolina and Marlboro County, South Carolina. The railroad has 73 total miles (118 km) of mainline track and in 1992, successfully celebrated its 100th birthday.

“We are very excited to announce that A&R embraced our RailSync product suite which will assist them to efficiently collaborate with their trading partners. It puts timely and critical information in front of the train crew, with a work order telling them exactly which cars to pull or place at each location. Additional details such as HAZMAT information and instructions are also easily accessible. We can customize the UI to any device that our customers choose. We do not see any point in charging extra for mobile access which should be ubiquitous in today’s technologies,” said Charith Perera, CEO of ShipXpress.

“We are pleased to have ShipXpress as a partner and wish to express our gratitude to their team for a smooth implementation of the RailSync system. The system was designed to address the specific needs of short-line and regional railroads. We expect to expand our use of the RailSync system to include their mobile applications,” said Garland Horton, A&R’s President.
