BNSF Railway has selected Tideworks Technology to provide terminal management and planning software solutions in a pilot project at BNSF’s Alliance Intermodal Facility in Fort Worth, TX.
The pilot project will encompass the implementation of Tideworks’ Spinnaker Planning Management System and Traffic Control solutions at BNSF’s fifth largest intermodal facility. Spinnaker provides fully-integrated rail planning tools which will interface with BNSF’s existing gate technologies and mainframe system.
BNSF will be able to use the system to track containers, trailers, chassis, rail cars, and other assets. The system is expected to improve data accuracy and maximize efficiency in operations.
BNSF will also deploy Traffic Control, an advanced module of the Spinnaker Planning Management System. Traffic Control provides management tools and advanced system administration technologies to optimize operational efficiency and further increase ROI.
