April 23, 2015 - JACKSONVILLE BEACH, FL – ShipXpress Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based software solutions for the logistics industry, announced that Gulf & Ohio Railways has chosen the RailSync® product suite to manage its railway logistics.
Established in 1985, Gulf & Ohio Railways is headquartered in Knoxville, Tennessee and is a holding company for four different short-line railroads in the Southern United States that carry a wide variety of commodities, generating around 40,000 annual carloads over approximately 225 miles of track. Gulf & Ohio joins a steadily growing number of railroads that have adopted the ShipXpress RailSync® software solution and, as a result, have found collaboration with their customers more efficient.
“The acquisition of Lancaster and Chester Railway Company left G&O working with two different systems. They required an easy-to-use, complete solution that provided better support and efficient control of car hire expenses. We feel honored that they chose ShipXpress to improve their operational processes and collaboration with customers,” said Charith Perera, CEO of ShipXpress.
RailSync® puts timely and critical information in front of the train crew with work orders that direct exactly which cars to pull or place at each location. RailSync® also provides fast access to HazMat information as well as tracking revenue with a highly customizable user interface that is accessible on any device.
“It has been a welcome transition to incorporate ShipXpress in to our transportation management system. The transition was smooth and the new solution provides us a much better user interface for our data processers along with local managers in the field at each property. It will also enable us to efficiently track and manage our railcars on our rail road system once we implement the hand held devices in the near future. We now have all of our properties on one system that allows us to track our revenue and select expenses at our corporate level that will allow us to better monitor cash flows at any given time,” said Todd Burchette, Chief Operating Officer of Gulf & Ohio Railways.
