What Tracsis Did
Rio Grande Pacific Corporation needed a completely consistent and reliable dispatch platform to deliver their services and support those of others. The company selected Tracsis’ Dispatch system to confidently underpin their services and deliver enhanced requirements for busy railroads safely and on time.
One of RPPC’s key services is outsourced train dispatching, where the Rio Grande Dispatch Center uses the Tracsis Dispatch software to support primary and backup rail dispatching for 11 short line and commuter railroads. This platform also enables more than 1,100 crew starts and issues around 1,800 monthly track warrants.
Tracsis DOC Dispatch System helps RGPC to combine different trains, rulesets and territories through one comprehensive platform covering all of their mainline train control needs for ultimate flexibility and efficiency.
Rio Grande Dispatch Center maximizes critical DOC Dispatch capabilities to easily integrate into third-party platforms and databases, increasing their ability to share mission-critical information across their whole organization.
