The acquisition, combined with Navis’ N4 Terminal Operating System (TOS) for intermodal operations, aims to support the company’s expansion into inland solutions, providing freight operators around the world with planning software designed to improve the quality and efficiency of rail operations, including train services, locomotives, yards, railcars, crews and train paths. Melbourne, Australia-based Biarri Rail offers a suite of integrated service design and operational tools for freight railways.
Following the acquisition—which Navis said will not have a significant impact on Cargotec financials—the Biarri Rail team will continue to operate out of its Melbourne, Australia, and Chicago, Ill., offices under the direction of Biarri Rail CEO Tom Forbes.
“At Navis, we are excited to now be able to complement our market-leading port-based TOS solutions with truly first-class offerings for rail freight globally,” said Benoit de la Tour, President, Navis. “Rail freight companies are investing in new digital initiatives in planning in order to increase efficiency and the return on investment of their supply chain assets. The Biarri Rail team is a true blend of technologists and mathematicians, one-hundred percent focused on optimizing every step of intermodal rail operations. Existing Biarri Rail customers are thrilled with the substantial cost-savings and efficiencies that Biarri Rail solutions have brought to their business.”
“As railroads adopt various monitoring and assessment tools to better track and manage the more than 1.6 million rail cars and 40,000 locomotives, it is important that technology keep pace to manage the data with efficient operational processes, tools and support systems,” said Forbes. “We are beyond excited to join the Navis team, combining our areas of expertise to offer our rail customers new ways to improve customer service, improve asset utilization, boost operational performance and maximize capacity.”
