A NEW TECHNOLOGY JOINT VENTURE
RailPulse is a new coalition of forward-thinking railcar owners who have joined together to create a neutral, open-architecture, industry-wide railcar telematics platform that will help transform rail shipping by bringing it into the 21st century. The venture will create an information infrastructure that enables data from GPS and railcar-mounted sensors to drive improved service levels, visibility, safety, sustainability, and productivity into North American rail-based supply chains.
RailPulse is possible thanks to a Consolidated Rail Infrastructure and Safety Improvements grant through the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), as well as additional investments from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and our coalition members.
RailPulse is being launched by 7 major railcar owners and users who have a significant footprint in the rail ecosystem.
EQUAL REPRESENTATION FOR THE ENTIRE RAIL ECOSYSTEM
RailPulse is being created for the benefit of all constituents in the rail ecosystem to drive carload growth. The new telematics platform will support the entire rail industry: shippers, Class I railroads, short lines, regional railroads, switching carriers, and railcar operating lessors, all while enhancing the safety and security of proprietary car-owner data.
ACCELERATED TELEMATICS ADOPTION
RailPulse will help simplify the adoption of telematics technology across the rail industry to drive productivity, value, and growth. Constituents will also be able to leverage RailPulse’s standard SLA with certified vendors and access device performance data and installation recommendations for various car types.
