Railinc control Module expands service to Class 1, shortline and regional railroads

by Canadian Shipper

Railinc has announced the commercial availability of RailSync’s Control module. With the release of Control-which joins RailSync Command and Concur–Railinc now offers a full suite of Internet-based services that aim to enable Short Line and Regional Railroads to access and process mission-critical information.

Control, centrally processed at Railinc, provides complete car accounting services which are flexible and compatible with any Transportation Management System (TMS), says the company. Control offers a full range of functionality and management reports for historical comparisons and trend analysis.

Web-hosted, secure and with no IT infrastructure requirements, RailSync’s three modules now include Command, a TMS which offers users tools for managing terminal, yard, train and industrial rail operations; Concur, a revenue management system that allows users to manage freight revenue efficiently and accurately, while enabling industry certified Interline Settlement System (ISS) participation; and Control, which can retrieve, organize and process car hire information from all transportation systems.

“Shortline and Regional railroads play a very important role in the North American rail network,” said Jim Gardner, President of Railinc. “It is critical that they operate on the most productive systems and that they are electronically linked with all the other participants in this network," he said.
