Intermodal / Rail
APS Technology Group offers solutions and services to automate railroad and intermodal operations that occur both inside a facility and throughout a transportation network. Our resources benefit from years of experience designing and implementing solutions for the largest class 1 railroads and local transportation entities like the Alameda Corridor Transportation Authority.
The goal of our rail/intermodal solutions is to provide our clients with tools to automate the data collection and verification of cargo and equipment moving throughout their facilities in real-time. With our cutting-edge intermodal solutions, our clients improve their operating ratios by increasing terminal and yard efficiency, reducing manual labor and operational costs, improving system capacities, and meeting the expectations of their customers.
