Why is Asset Tracking Important in the Rail Industry?
- 56% of the freight cars in the US won’t move on any given day.
- Loaded cars can sit idle for 23 hours a day before being routed to their destination.
- Demurrage fees for many fleets exceed 7 digits annually.
Rail Asset Tracking
Underutilization and long idle times for freight cars not only results in lost profits and high annual demurrage fees for rail operations – you also have to answer to customers whose bottom line is negatively impacted by delayed and lost deliveries. Avoid potential customer issues by complementing your existing rail logistics systems with GPS asset tracking. Geoforce’s rail asset tracking solutions are purpose-built for accuracy and durability, even in the harshest conditions, allowing you to take charge of your operations and improve customer relationships.

Digital Asset Tracking for the Rail Industry
Without a digital asset tracking platform for visibility of all of your rail assets in one place, rail operations rely on manual processes which leave room for human error. For the freight yard, the result is hundreds of freight cars sitting idle without any streamlined method for locating specific assets. Misplacing freight cars is a common pain point, especially for large-scale rail operations. For trains en route, the result of not having a digital asset tracking platform is boxcars, tankers, and hoppers becoming decoupled and lost – and in turn, lost profits.
