Tideworks sets up Intermodal division

Seattle-based Tideworks Technology is boosting its presence in the intermodal software market with a new dedicated intermodal division located in Jacksonville, Florida.

As part of its expansion in the intermodal market Tideworks plans to hire additional staff and move its existing Jacksonville office to a new location by the end of 2019.

 

The expansion is well timed; the Gulf and East coasts are the fastest growing intermodal markets in the US at the moment. Tideworks IPRO TOS is an established application in the market, and with key customer CSX Intermodal Terminals now running 31 facilities with its software Tideworks has a reference that spans a wide variety of operations. Some of the key rail operators in the US are now expanding terminals and converting some facilities to stacking operations using RTGs and widespan RMGs, which creates new opportunities for software suppliers.

 

“The intermodal division will enable Tideworks to dedicate resources and continue investing in the research and development of new products and services for the global rail industry,” Tideworks stated.

Mark Bromley has been appointed Vice President of Intermodal at Tideworks to lead the new division and oversee the testing, deployment and support of intermodal products and services across Tideworks’ global customer and partner network.

 

“This expansion solidifies Tideworks’ position and commitment as a key intermodal TOS provider,” said Thomas Rucker, president of Tideworks. “It will empower us to drive future adoption of our intermodal TOS, while exploring additional ways to serve the intermodal market that align well with our business. This growth and focus allow Tideworks to deploy specialized resources for the intermodal market – a necessity in the increasingly competitive global supply chain. Our existing and future intermodal customers can have confidence and comfort knowing Tideworks has a fully-staffed team focused on the market and its unique needs.”

 

“I am excited to see Tideworks’ increased commitment to the intermodal market,” said Bromley. “Jacksonville is a prime location for this dedicated team given its proximity to some of our key customers, including leading rail carriers. We look forward to working closely with our current and future intermodal customers to deliver solutions that help them remain competitive in the global supply chain.”
