RailConnect™ Visibility and Planning
Making freight by rail easier
RailConnect Visibility and Planning benefits rail shippers, short lines, and class 1s, by providing the ability to manage inbound railcar pipeline against forecasted production needs with greater precision and efficiency.
Supply chains face a dynamic environment: new sources of competition, operational complexity, flux in global trade policy, and the need for greater levels of productivity.
And all of this is against the backdrop of an economy where expectations for delivery are becoming shorter and more exacting. Optimizing the flow of goods is all about gaining improved visibility into the supply chain and using that information to drive performance. RailConnect Visibility and Planning alleviates the complexities of the supply chain, enabling informed, real-time decision-making and bringing predictability and efficiency to freight rail.
