Railroads Create Shipment Information Platform

Norfolk Southern and CSX will use supply-chain technology firm Blume Global as a collaborative information platform to coordinate cross-country shipments.

The two Class 1 railroads are joining with Union Pacific in the venture, which Blume said in a news release will use a neutral platform that encourages further collaboration.

The scheduling platform and Blume asset management will track details of shipments and interchange, the companies said, thus creating the ability to catch missing interchange points and improve future deliveries.
