Say you’re a shipper who ships grain, and you’re wondering where your shipment is located. Railways can only tell you so much — “there’s some congestion, everyone is experiencing delays” etc. With RailState, you’ll be able to understand specifics about the movement of your cars. Let’s say your grain train was ahead of four intermodal trains, and then, after a traffic jam, it ended up behind those trains. This lets you know the network is moving, but your train isn’t being prioritized. Having this background information allows you to enter into a conversation with the railways that’s more productive and specific.
