GE Equipment Services introduces Web-based asset-management systems for rail and intermodal



GE Equipment Services has taken the wraps off two wireless asset-management systems. The company recently introduced the VeriWise™ RAIL and VeriWise™ INTERMODAL systems.

The Web-based systems feature remote monitoring devices, sensors, algorithms, and satellite- and cellular-based communications networks designed to monitor a rail car’s or intermodal unit’s location and condition.

Since mid-2006, GE has offered VeriWise systems to monitor hazardous-material and agricultural cargo. The company also markets a VeriWise™ TRUCKING system.

“With approximately 150,000 VeriWise units already installed on over-the-road assets, a monitoring solution for rail and intermodal units is a natural progression for us,” said Jay Wileman, president and chief executive officer of GE Equipment Services-Rail Services, in a prepared statement.
