Information is power. It is also the key to efficiency. Control and manage yard, inventory, waybills, train movements, switching, demurrage, and even miscellaneous billing. The more you know about your railroad in real-time, the better — and more efficiently — you can manage it. As a core operating and communications system, GE Transportation’s RailConnect™ Transportation Management System (TMS) automates and tracks the entry of car movements and switching operations. The system also provides visibility over all rail assets by communicating information proactively and empowering you to better plan workflow, generate work orders, measure performance, and improve customer service.
