Expediting Rail Shipments

Rick Elston, former Vice President Logistics (of Sales) at RAG (formerly Cyprus Amax Coal Sales), says, “Railcars in our fleet were being used by a particular railroad without our authorization and free of charge,” Mr. Elston said. “We used RMS to document exactly where these railcars were used and for how long; this documentation helped us receive payments from the railroad for the use of these railcars. The payments received so far have more than recouped our investment in RMS.”

When the railroads had service problems, Mr. Elston found RMS particulary helpful, “We could document where and how long our railcars had been sitting idle. This information helped us expedite the shipments.”
