In the News: Lat-Lon in Coal Transporter

Coal Transporter Issue1, 2012 has a featured article involving Lat-Lon on Handbrakes; Wheelsets; and Accountability.  Who's Stuck with the Bill?

The article focuses on the damage incurred in overlooking the release of the handbrake prior to moving a railcar.  Mitsui Rail Capital (MRC), a Lat-Lon customer, brought the challenge to us and now has a method to better understand what is occurring regarding their railcar's handbrake.  With GPS tracking and a RF Sensor Unit, MRC can see when and where the handbrake is applied and released, and even send an alert if applied while moving.  Read More or contact us for more information at support@lat-lon.com.
