RailTerm Corp’s first dispatching operation began in 2005. Today, RailTerm Corp provides safe and efficient dispatching services to more than 35 railways across the United States of America, covering over 3,500 miles of track. We issue more than 100,000 track authorities per year in the process from our primary dispatch center in Rutland, VT.
Easy and streamlined integration of new railway operations
RailTerm uses its own railroad dispatch software, the TrainMaster, to dispatch freight and passenger railways across the United States. This custom Windows™ based software accommodates both Centralized Traffic Control (CTC) and dark territory/Occupancy Control System (OCS), as well as multiple railway operation rules sets including GCOR and NS, allowing for an easy and streamlined integration of new client operations no matter where they are located.
