Tideworks Technology, a full-service provider of terminal operating system (TOS) solutions, is to create a dedicated intermodal division located in Jacksonville, Florida.
The company plans to hire additional staff focused on intermodal customer success, technology and sales to augment its current Jacksonville workforce.
Given the growth of its team in Florida, Tideworks will relocate its existing Jacksonville office to a new location by the end of 2019.
The company hopes its intermodal division will enable it to dedicate resources and continue investing in the research and development of new products and services for the global rail industry.
Mark Bromley, a 20-year veteran of the logistics industry, was appointed vice president of intermodal at Tideworks to lead the new division and oversee the testing, deployment and support of intermodal products and services across the service provider’s global customer and partner network.
Thomas Rucker, president of Tideworks, said: “This expansion solidifies Tideworks’ position and commitment as a key intermodal TOS provider. It will empower us to drive future adoption of our intermodal TOS, while exploring additional ways to serve the intermodal market that align well with our business.
This growth will allow the company to deploy specialised resources for the intermodal market, he added, which will be necessary due to the increasing competitiveness of the global supply chain.
Bromley stated: “Jacksonville is a prime location for this dedicated team given its proximity to some of our key customers, including leading rail carriers.”
In a significant milestone for Tideworks, CSX Intermodal Terminals recently went live with its TOS across its entire network of 31 sites.
