Freight Rail

Freight Rail

Would you like to be able to effectively manage your entire wagon fleet to maximise utilisation? As a rail planner, would you prefer to decrease the amount of time spent planning and be able to respond to emergencies and unplanned rail maintenance with minimal turnaround? Are you constantly looking at ways to improve the tonnage throughput capacity, but lack the visibility into your network to do so? Do new resource additions to your network have negative impacts on key performance indicators like congestion and wagon cycle time?

OPSI Systems has significant experience in transport optimisation, and rail is no different. With our expertise and planning tools such as PLATO.Rail, combined with the knowledge of our consulting team, we have helped transform the South African freight rail industry - a critical component of the country’s economy - with year-on-year improvements in wagon management and transported volumes.

In 2013, OPSI Systems won a Gold Award for their involvement in the Transnet Freight Rail project.
