Improve productivity and reduce costs for rail & intermodal applications
With installations in 25 countries, TransCore is the leader in automatic equipment identification (AEI) for the rail industry, and we have set the standards by which all AEI is measured. Throughout the world and spanning five continents, TransCore has installed more than 9.1 million tags and 31,000 readers throughout the rail and intermodal industry.
Our transportation tag and reader system provides an easy and inexpensive way to improve productivity and reduce costs. Transportation tags are mounted on railcars, locomotives, trailers, chassis, containers, and truck cabs with readers installed at strategic points, such as railroad interchange points and yards, gates, fuel tracks lanes, and maintenance facilities. As tagged equipment passes a reader, the tag identifies the equipment and the reader relays the time, date, or other programmed information to a host computer.
After a multimillion dollar investment in research and development, TransCore recently introduced its next generation rail products. The new multiprotocol reader and train recording unit (TRU) are designed to support the rail market’s transition to updated automatic equipment identification (AEI) technology.
Intermodal and trucking companies can use TransCore readers and tags to track chassis, containers, and other equipment as soon as it enters the terminal gates. For example, the serial number, time, and date of transaction is sent to the host computer the moment the tagged equipment passes a reader. Our system also helps ensure timeliness and accuracy and improve scheduling. Hands-free and wireless, these systems improve equipment and inventory accuracy, eliminate paperwork, and increase employee productivity by automating the equipment tracking procedures at the terminal.
We provide logistics management and integrated supply-chain tracking systems to customers on five continents. From rail to truck, we offer full distribution chain management solutions.
