The INet Difference
Industrial Networks (INet) is the leading provider of railyard automation and data acquisition systems for rail operations in North America. Our expertise touches operations run by rail shippers, short line and Class I railroads, railcar repair and maintenance shops, and more.
Beginning in the early 1990s, Class I railroads adopted a form of passive Radio-Frequency Identification, Automatic Equipment Identification (AEI), as a way to more effectively track railcars. At that time, every railcar in North America was equipped with two AEI tags, and since 2005, we discovered rail shippers were not taking advantage of this technology and partnered with the leading provider of rail transportation software to shippers in North America, Bourque Logistics, to address this need. This partnership has led Industrial Networks to become the largest provider of AEI readers to shippers in North America.
There are many choices when it comes to taking control of your railyard and operations. What makes INet different? Here are a few of the top reasons we stand above the rest:
