Those who are unfamiliar with the intricacies of rail might assume it’s an antiquated form of transportation. But anyone who has ever worked in the rail industry knows it’s the opposite of outdated.

In fact, rail is far ahead of its time.

Since the transition from steam to diesel, locomotives have been the most environmentally-friendly form of land transportation. Trains emit less greenhouse gases than cars, buses or trucks. However, the industry won’t settle for less emissions when zero emissions is a possibility. Industry leaders are actively working on innovative solutions that will allow locomotives to operate with little or zero emissions.

Rail is an industry leader in more sectors than just green transportation. Companies like Wi-Tronix, LLC have been some of the first to fully embrace the power of data sharing. By collecting data from thousands of locomotives, we’ve been able to generate powerful insights about safety and efficiency.

Furthermore, our systems provide real-time access to data, which allows operators to avoid issues before they arise. By harnessing advanced analytics, we put our users at the forefront of technological advances.

These are just a few of the many reasons rail is the epitome of modern transportation.
