UP devises intermodal terminal app for truck drivers' mobile devices


Union Pacific Railroad earlier this year introduced UPGo, a mobile application designed to expedite intermodal terminal processes for truck drivers.

Accessible on Apple and Andriod mobile devices, UPGo includes features to pre-ingate and pre-outgate containers, complete paperwork in advance and obtain real-time parking updates.

The mobile app is designed to prevent errors at gates, decrease dwell time, increase safety and alleviate congestion throughout terminals, such as by reducing the number of stops inside ramps and streamlining drivers' exits.

UPGo is now available at all 32 of UP's intermodal facilities. In August, more than 22,000 truck drivers were registered to use the app and 61 percent of high-frequency drivers (who log five or more gate visits per month) were active users, according to the Class I.
