To revolutionize rail intermodal transportation, the next generation of control systems, autonomous interfaces, artificial intelligence, communications, and real time actionable command and control information, will be the foundation for success developed by IRIS the Intelligent Rail Intermodal System.
Below is an example of the inputs and process to move rail intermodal shipments. In 2022, 17.4 Million shipments in North America followed this regimen. IRIS is focused on the future for faster, efficient, and secure results.
IRIS data goals are listed on the yellow area of the Intermodal Cycle graphic.
