Published on : Wednesday, August 24, 2016

Union-PacificUnion Pacific Railroad recently was named Railroad of the Year by the Railway Industrial Clearance Association (RICA), an industry association made up of railroads, shippers and manufacturers, and logistics providers. RICA recognition is based on peer votes in areas such as technological advances and customer service.


Union Pacific received the honor largely due to creation and implementation of PS Technology (PST) software called iClear. PST is a wholly owned subsidiary of Union Pacific Corporation. iClear allows users to quickly validate railroad routes for oversized loads, without waiting for someone to manually check clearance, saving time and enhancing customer experience. iClear uses automatic 3D modeling, creating loaded rail car geometry and rail network information to check for obstructions, select viable routes and produce meet-pass location mapping. The software was initially implemented by Union Pacific and is now available commercially.


iClear is one technology Union Pacific uses to enhance railroad safety and efficiency. The company proactively works with various stakeholders, including suppliers, governmental organizations, employees and engineering researchers to design tech-based solutions for improved customer experience.
