SiShips Expands Existing Information Database with Rail Tracking
We know, now more than ever, that information is the most valuable commodity. That is why we are excited to share SiShips is now offering rail tracking in tandem with our GPS satellite ocean tracking. Our rail tracking will provide near real-time data sent around the clock, increasing transparency in the shipping process and enabling our shipping partners to be constantly aware of the location of equipment and railcars on more than 560 rail carriers across North America. Our enhanced intermodal tracking abilities will provide more data that you care about in order to improve performance and efficiency while reducing cost.
It’s All About the Data
More data points means greater transparency and a greater ability to save you money. Utilizing wayside detectors, the system processes over 11 million events every single day, guaranteeing instant and, more importantly, accurate insight into the status of your shipments. These systems enhance our already vast ocean database and result in more detailed ETAs, Standard Point Location Codes and waybill information.
Unique Benefits of Hybrid System with AIS Satellite Tracking
Our goal has always been to provide complete shipping visibility throughout the entire shipping process from initial loading to final delivery of freight. Our intermodal network allows us to fulfill that mission better than ever before as we deliver a seamless transition from sea-to-land. AIS satellites were first implemented in 1974, meaning we have decades of data to rely upon. Couple that with the terrestrial rail tracking, which contains data points from nearly 200 years ago, and you have an incredibly reliable system that is able to foresee changing conditions like no other.
