Lew said the partnership with Railinc creates an ideal synergy of technology and services that will improve efficiencies throughout the freight shipping industry.

“When the TransmetriQ team was working with rail shippers to develop our Rail Management System, it became clear that customers valued simplicity and actionable insights,” said Mika Majapuro, TransmetriQ vice president of product management and strategy. “Combining next-generation technology and deep rail expertise, Railinc and Commtrex are able to provide an excellent freight rail experience that simplifies shipping by rail, making it more intuitive and attractive.”
