RailPulse has entered into a 10-year agreement with Railinc to develop, maintain and operate RailPulse’s technology platform for monitoring rail-car location, condition and health characteristics across North American supply chains. The partnership will enable the RailPulse coalition to deploy its remote monitoring platform on schedule in late 2022, according to a joint press release. Railinc will also help implement data management protocols, as well as integrate rail-car telematics device data into RailPulse’s backend systems.

Keolis has begun operating and maintaining the new tram network in Odense, Denmark, on behalf of Odense Letbane. The new tram line — the city’s first — is located on the island of Funen. The launch follows the award of a 15-year operation and maintenance contract by the city’s transport authority in November 2018. The 9-mile tram line has 26 stations and is expected to serve 10 million to 11 million riders annually.

With its expanded footprint, Mi-Jack will provide support and service to Yardeye customers in North America and Mi-Star technology solutions to ports and terminals across Europe, company officials said in a press release.
