Time Savings Achieved

Melinda Dillon, Transportation Coordinator says, “The primary time savings GLC has realized from using RMS [ Railcar Management System ] include (as approximates): 1.5 hrs/day by running Daily Reports for car locations and managing by exception; 2 hrs/month managing contracts and leases; 2 hrs/week providing information to sales/marketing / corporate management on trends of trip times, customer ordering, and customer unloading times; 8 hrs/month demurrage records and billing reports. In addition, we have been able to increase our mileage payments by 15% using Daily Car Location exception reports (Cars Not Moving by …). This function alone has more than paid for the initial cost of the RMS software.”
