KCS to use crew management software for U.S. operations


Kansas City Southern will expand its deployment of the CloudMoyo crew management (CCM) software solution to its U.S. operations, the Class I announced yesterday.

The software is already in place at KCS' Mexico operations. The next generation global CCM is designed to leverage the scale of the Microsoft Azure Cloud platform, harness the power of advanced analytics, and use artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies to optimize crew assignments and reduce dwell time for trains and crew, according to a KCS press release.

“KCS’ vision is to consistently be the fastest-growing, best-performing, most customer-focused transportation provider in North America. The planned expansion of the CCM solution from Mexico to the U.S. supports this growth vision while delivering a seamless user experience,” said KCS Executive Vice President and Chief Innovation Officer Brian Hancock.

KCS officials anticipate the CCM solution will help the railroad bypass lengthy deployment schedules, they said. It will enable KCS crews in the United States and Mexico to work more effectively and securely across geographical locations, while still being flexible to operate independently on regional basis, they added.
