The INet Difference

Industrial Networks Logo

As the premier provider of railyard automation and data acquisition systems for North American rail operations, Industrial Networks (INet) empowers rail shippers, Class I and short line railroads, as well as railcar repair and maintenance facilities with our unparalleled expertise.

Commencing in the early 1990s, Class I railroads adopted a passive Radio-Frequency Identification known as Automatic Equipment Identification (AEI), revolutionizing railcar tracking. During this era, each railcar in North America was outfitted with dual AEI tags. Recognizing the untapped potential of this technology, we teamed up with Bourque Logistics, a top rail transportation software provider for North American shippers, in 2005. This collaborative effort has propelled Industrial Networks to its current position as the top supplier of AEI solutions to shippers across 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:
