    Rail Transload is a web-based dispatch planner that improves planning effectiveness and effectively automates the critically important process of verifying that the right railcar is being loaded/offloaded to the right trailer. It is designed around a web-based dispatch planner that can operate from any internet-connected PC. A handheld mobile computer equipped with an AEI railcar scanner and a 1D/2D barcode scanner is used for data collection and communication to and from users in the transload yard.

    Rail Transload? allows the user to create and populate a dispatch plan, linking customer orders to railcar inventory and trailer equipment. For users who already have a dispatch system, this product is designed for a seamless integration with your existing systems. It provides a completely automated interface and eliminates any duplicate keystroke data entry.

    A handheld mobile computer acquires the load plan data from the dispatch system. It is equipped with an AEI railcar scanner and a 1D/2D barcode scanner that enables transload site personnel to electronically verify each trailer/railcar connection and the associated railcar seals before the transload is begun. As additional assurance, it stores an electronic record of the trailer/railcar verification for proof if a claim arises in the future.

    The system also provides a railcar seal management function, allowing the transload site operator to scan incoming railcars using the AEI reader and electronically document the identification number(s) on the cars' security seals. This data is uploaded to a secure server and maintained in database format. As seals are changed during the course of inspecting, sampling and offloading, the user can easily rescan the car and the new seals, ensuring an accurate and up-to-date record of all seal numbers in use on the site. The seals can be entered manually or via the built-in 1D/2D barcode scanner in the portable AEI reader.
