NETWORK
OPTIMIZATION

Freight requirements are expected to double in the next two decades. To keep up with demand, the industry needs sophisticated technologies to move freight faster, smarter, and more efficiently.

GE Transportation’s Network Optimization solutions use sophisticated software algorithms to optimize each area of your operation — from main lines, to yards, to terminals, to ports — resulting in efficient traffic flow across the network.

MOVEMENT
PLANNER

Movement Planner System is an advanced software solution that provides real-time traffic planning and optimization. It intelligently analyzes traffic, detects meet/pass conflicts, and optimized routes.

Movement Planner allows railroads to run more trains faster, smarter, and more efficiently using existing rail networks, and without laying new track.

The result? Increased railroad capacity. Greater efficiency and productivity. Less environmental impact. And millions in capital and operating expense dollars saved annually.

YARD
PLANNER

Classification yard optimization is at the heart of every rail operation. Manual planning leads to inefficiencies in yard operations. Yard Planner System is an advanced software solution designed to help you make the best decisions around asset use and resource working sequences. Yard Planner allows you to visualize and monitor yard state and plan yard activities, so you can get trains connected and out of the yard faster, and avoid trains sitting idle.

DID YOU KNOW?
On average rail cars spend 40-60% of their time in the yards sitting idle.

YARD REMOTE
CONTROL TECHNOLOGIES

GE Transportation’s remote control technologies enable remote control of locomotives in the rail yard, leading to increased automation and efficient train operations.

With remote control technologies, one worker with a remote-control device, governed by a documented set of protocols and requirements, switches cars at the yard. This results in optimized crew deployment and reduction in car dwell time.

Remote Control technologies working in conjunction with Yard Planner provides for optimal execution of switch lists.

SMART INTERMODAL
TERMINAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM*

Intermodal terminals become more productive with better planning of equipment and people, precise control of terminal events and efficient gate processing. A sophisticated terminal planner and optimizer all-in-one, Smart Intermodal Terminal system enables better decisions around asset use and resource working sequences. This allows terminals to optimize operations, automate work orders and increase data visibility.

DID YOU KNOW?
GE Transportation’s Terminal Operating System (TOS) is operating at more than 70 terminals supporting 20 plus million lifts a year.
