CSX Intermodal Terminals Implements Tideworks Technology
Jul 06, 2011 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Tideworks Technology, a provider of terminal management and planning software solutions, announced that CSX Intermodal Terminals has successfully implemented Tideworks' terminal operating system for its operations at its Northwest Ohio intermodal terminal.
"CSX's goal of building the most advanced intermodal terminal in the world was ambitious and required technology from a variety of partners," said Michael Schwank, president of Tideworks Technology, in a release.
"NWOH needed a solution to help manage container and railcar inventory, container stacking, coordination of truck activities, and control of complex container movements, including the rail-to-rail transfer of containers. We were honored to be selected as the TOS provider and take a lead role to ensure the tight integration of third-party technologies and the high-level of automation of terminal operations sought by CSX. With Tideworks' TOS, terminals of all sizes and configurations can efficiently manage their terminal operations from end-to-end."
Tideworks' solutions helped CSX create a fully-integrated transfer point, as well as maximize automation and productivity for the operation at NWOH.
The TOS solution deployed at NWOH includes Tideworks' Intermodal Pro terminal operating system, the Traffic Control move dispatch and equipment control module, and Tideworks' new System Integration Module, which serves as a message broker, providing a means to integrate Tideworks' TOS with virtually any third-party technology.
Additionally, Tideworks implemented its Automated Gate System solution, GateVision, with a partner's optical character recognition system. Tideworks also provided all associated implementation services, including project management, software customization, user training, and go-live assistance, in addition to Tideworks' platinum maintenance and support services, including 24/7 technical support and all software upgrades.
Tideworks is a provider of software solutions for terminal operations and shipping lines.
The hub is part of the National Gateway, a partnership which supports the movement of double-stacked intermodal containers on rail cars by raising bridges, increasing tunnel clearances and building new terminals along existing rail routes.
