Rail Pulse reps to discuss new venture at RailTrends


Representatives of the new Rail Pulse venture will talk about the new program at the RailTrends® 2020 conference, which will be held virtually Nov. 19-20.

The presentation will be made Nov. 19 and feature speakers Robert DeGroot, vice president of railroad leasing and sales for Trinity Industries Inc.; Michael McClellan, VP of strategic planning at Norfolk Southern Corp.; and Paul Titterton, senior VP and chief operating officer at GATX Corp.

NS, Trinity, GATX, Genesee & Wyoming Inc. and Watco Cos. LLC last month announced the formation of Rail Pulse to create a technology platform that will help transform rail shipping. The new venture aims to facilitate and accelerate the adoption of GPS and other telematics technology across the North American rail-car fleet.

Now in it's 16th year, RailTrends — presented by Progressive Railroading and Tony Hatch, senior transportation analyst at ABH Consulting — features the perspectives of senior executives from Class Is, regionals and short lines during two days of sessions.

This year's event is being held virtually instead of in New York City due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Conference attendees will hear about key trends from three Class I chief executive officers and other high-ranking industry representatives.
