Works with your existing system
Geoforce asset tracking devices work with your existing rail logistics systems for increased operational efficiency. Don’t start from scratch—take what you have and make it work harder for you with Geoforce.
Demurrage charges add up fast. Decrease costs using Geofencing and Geozones to identify time spent at rail stations, border crossings, or time in a yard to get your idle rail cars back on the tracks as quickly as possible.
Find your assets right away if they become decoupled from the train during shunting or switching. Remotely monitor your boxcars, tankers and hoppers via Geoforce’s GPS asset tracking solutions to make asset recovery quick and simple.
Total control, anywhere in the world
You need tracking devices you can trust to deliver consistent, accurate location data no matter where on the globe your assets travel. Geoforce asset trackers are field tested to withstand harsh conditions. Remote locations are no problem, either—Geoforce devices run on some of the world’s best satellite and cellular networks for unparalleled visibility and responsiveness.
Benefits for the Rail Industry
Increase asset velocity
Get your idle rail cars back on the tracks as quickly as possible and decrease dwell times and demurrage charges. Use Geofencing and Geozones to identify time spent at rail stations, border crossings, or time in a yard.
Recover lost equipment
Remotely monitor your boxcars, tankers, and hoppers via Geoforce’s GPS asset tracking solutions to ensure they are quickly found when they become decoupled from the train during shunting or switching.
Maximize equipment utilization
Use asset tracking devices paired with Track and Trace software to generate daily, weekly, and other periodic utilization and telemetry reports for your railcars’ location and usage that will help you determine if you have one sitting at a location that can be used at another.
Eliminate invoice discrepancies
Track and Trace allows you to share billing information with third party users to better coordinate timing of shipments and eliminate invoice discrepancies resulting in less stress between customers and suppliers.
Perform inventory in a snap
Geoforce’s Days on Location reports tie GIS data to the lat/long of a railcar to automatically produce an accurate gauge of the number of days an asset has been at a specific location, allowing you to perform inventory counts instantly and painlessly.
Calculate accurate arrival time
Utilize GIS data to calculate accurate estimated time of arrival (ETA) for just-in-time rail operations.
