Navis Rail

Planning and Scheduling

Software for Freight Railroads

Navis Rail, powered by Biarri Rail, is a fully integrated planning platform for freight railroads – designed for the challenges of Precision Scheduled Railroading (PSR). Navis Rail supports all aspects of service design and operational planning for the rapid application of powerful tools across your key freight rail assets. In this era of PSR, and “post-PSR” planning, rail carriers need new tools for the production of optimized scheduled train, railcar, locomotive, yard and crew plans based on real customer demand. Our combination of sophisticated optimization engines, and an elegant user interface, are designed to make this very complex discipline manageable by your current team. Navis Rail is the most cost efficient and easy way to design a plan to save money, optimize assets and drive efficiency.

Navis Rail Platform - Rail Network, Integration, Security, Data

The Navis Rail platform is divided into two groups of modules, all sharing the same integrated database. Navis Rail Planning covers the strategic planning and service design functions for a railroad. Navis Rail Ops manages the operational and short term issues that arise in operating a railroad. This includes dynamic resource allocation and network management.

Navis Rail is designed so that modules can be delivered individually to provide short term value at low risk, and also to be continually adapted to drive long term scalability and alignment.
