Railroad Mergers and Acquisitions
Mergers, rebranding, and acquisitions require changes within the rail industry's communication infrastructure, including the industry reference files (IRFs) used by all railroads to communicate the movement of rail cars.
Railnc’s mergers and acquisitions consulting team works with railroads to make sure that all systems are updated, messages are properly routed, and changes are processed for critical industry IT systems including the Umler® system and the Interline Settlement System®.
As these events occur, adoption notices are posted by the owner of a rail mark to communicate when changes are to go into effect. Railinc posts these adoption notices on its website as a service to the rail industry.
