Container Securement Working Group
Container Securement Objective: Identify solutions for automating the securement of containers moving in double stack train serviceBusiness Case:Safety exposuresEliminate ascends / descends / traversing on rail carCurrent processes – 1 Million ascends / descends per weekEfficiency gainsAutomation
Container Securement Interim solutions: Semi Automated IBCs:Removes IBC storage on railcarDecreases railcar ascends/descends/traversingCan be applied / removed from ground levelRemoves locking / unlocking processCurrently utilized in port environmentsRequires testing for use in rail environmentIBC Carts: Removes ascends / descends Efficiency gains in the securement process Currently utilized in some rail environments
Container Securement Long Term Solutions – Moving To Automation: Container Integration:Automated / Integrated locking systemsSuppliers currently in the market“Nested” container designRequires testingRail Car Design:Opportunities existBenefit a long way off – 50 year assets Robotics: Evolving / Interim approaches Requires testing
Container Securement Next Steps: Funding required to develop / test identified solutionsWhere will the funding come from?Funding would move the working group to a Task ForceTask Force would test, develop, and report potential solutionsLegal concerns of picking / assisting specific suppliers??
