Quincy, Massachusetts – March 2, 2023
RailState, the rail industry’s only provider of real-time network visibility, today announced that rail industry veterans Adam Nori and Nick Borders have joined RailState’s sales and business development team to scale product adoption across North America.
“One of our greatest strengths is the deep domain expertise of our team,” said Jamie Heller, RailState co-founder and CEO. “Adam and Nick have decades of combined experience serving freight rail shippers across North America. Their industry insights and connections will be crucial as RailState grows and delivers on our mission to bring network visibility and transparency to this industry.”
Adam Nori comes to RailState with nearly 20 years of rail experience. He is currently the owner of Pacific Alpine Rail Advisors, a Calgary-based rail-focused consulting firm where he supports rail customers with fleet management, railcar procurement, and business development. Before creating Pacific Alpine Rail Advisors, Adam held key leadership roles with some of the most well-known companies in the rail industry, including Canadian Pacific Railway, Suncor, TrinityRail, and Standard Rail Corporation.
“Throughout my time in the rail industry, I’ve seen countless companies struggle with effectively managing their rail operations because of missing or outdated data and a lack of transparency,” Nori said. “RailState’s product will transform the ability of companies to get the most out of rail by optimizing their logistics. I could not pass up the opportunity to be part of such an exciting innovation.”
Nick Borders brings more than a decade of experience in the rail industry and is the owner of Sequoia Rail, LLC, a rail transportation brokerage and consulting firm. Nick previously served as a business development manager at Standard Rail Corporation, following engagements at Rocky Mountain Transportation Services and Progressive Fuels Limited.
“I have a passion for leveraging the best technology at our disposal to make better decisions and improve this industry that we love and rely on,” Borders said. “In my opinion John Schmitter, Jamie Heller and their team have the most revolutionary value proposition our industry has seen in the last decade.”
“We are delighted to have Adam and Nick join RailState as we see increased demand from companies seeking unbiased, real-time rail network data to help them make critical decisions about their supply chains,” said John Schmitter, RailState’s co-founder and Chief Commercial Officer. “Their experience will be a tremendous asset to RailState as we continue to provide the broadest network visibility and real-time insights to our customers.”
