GE Rolls Out Asset Tracking System for Rail, Intermodal Transportation

GE Equipment Services today has introduced VeriWise Rail and VeriWise Intermodal, remote asset management solutions that provide customers with on-demand visibility into the status of their fleet and the cargo it carries.

The technology, already in service on more than 150,000 transportation assets in North America and Europe, is designed to provide decision support data directly to cargo shippers and carriers, helping them enhance safety and security, improve shipment delivery cycles and increase productivity.

"GE aims to solve fundamental problems, and moving goods more safely, securely and efficiently is one of the biggest challenges in transportation," says Jay Wileman, president and CEO of GE Equipment Services, Rail Services. "With approximately 150,000 VeriWise units already installed on over-the-road assets, a monitoring solution for rail and intermodal units is a natural progression for us and a necessary tool for the management and protection of railcar and intermodal fleets.

"Given our increased homeland security concerns, federal regulations on the tracking and monitoring of hazmat materials are inevitable," says Wileman. " VeriWise provides the industry with a solution for keeping an eye on fleets and cargo through all points of the supply chain."
