G&W selects Tideworks’ intermodal solutions for its rail network

Freightliner and Pentalver, subsidiaries of Genesee & Wyoming Inc. (G&W), have selected Tideworks as their intermodal solutions provider for their UK rail and container terminal network.

G&W will deploy the software developer’s Intermodal Pro TOS and Traffic Control equipment dispatch system across its UK-wide network of rail and container terminals.

Chris Lawrenson, managing director of terminals for G&W’s UK/Europe region companies, said: “We value the flexibility of Tideworks’ solutions to meet our needs as our network of facilities and TOS requirements have evolved.”

Intermodal Pro and Traffic Control will integrate with third-party systems including gate management and automation; container sales, maintenance and repair functionality; as well as support of a customer web portal.

In conjunction with the above solutions, Advent Intermodal Solutions, a leader in cloud-based terminal software solutions for the supply chain, will deploy multiple products in its suite of solutions including eModal Community Portal, eModal Pregate Vehicle Booking System, eModal Fee Manager and eModal Equipment Manager.

Thomas Rucker, president of Tideworks, stated: “Freightliner and Pentalver play a vital role in the UK intermodal market, and the integration of our dynamic intermodal offerings will enhance their operations in a competitive industry.”

For the initial deployments within G&W’s UK network, the US-based company will provide all associated implementation services including project management, software configuration and installation, integration services, user training and go-live assistance.

Once deployed, Tideworks will offer ongoing maintenance and support services, which include 24/7 technical support and software upgrades.
