Autonomous Rail

Freight rail is a critical piece of the world’s supply chain.

Each year in the US alone, goods worth $700 billion are moved by 1.6 million railcars.

However, each day almost a million railcars do not move at all.

And on each leg of a loaded railcar’s journey, it sits idle for an average of 24.6 hours waiting to be picked up by a locomotive.

Rail’s inefficiencies push many shipments to trucking, which is bad for society.

Trucks emit 9x more GHGs per ton-mile than rail, add congestion to our roads, and contribute to deadly accidents.

Intramotev is creating a world where no railcar sits idle, and not a gallon of fossil fuel is used to move them.
