CSX and Siemens Mobility to Deploy Digital Solutions for Freight Rail

North American Class I freight railroad company, CSX has expanded its partnership with Siemens Mobility to implement digital solutions for freight rail.

This collaboration will enable CSX to optimise rail traffic across approximately 20,000 route miles of track, leveraging Siemens’ Controlguide Core Dispatch System (CDS) and Rail Traffic Network Optimization Solution, TPS.live.

Siemens Mobility to deliver digital solutions to optimise CSX’s operations

Siemens Mobility and CSX have been working together to define the features of Controlguide CDS since July 2022 and have agreed to a joint production operation rollout of the latest capabilities in 2027.

Tobias Bauer, President of Rail Infrastructure, Siemens Mobility North America said:

“We are proud to partner with CSX to bring the latest in digital technology to freight rail in America. This operation is simply a continuation of the great partnership between Siemens Mobility and CSX. Together, we have successfully implemented our Back Office Server Product to support CSX’s PTC operations and our TPS.live product, which will support CSX with the optimisation of their rail network traffic, into CSX’s operations over the past 5 years.

“The Controlguide CDS will not only improve CSX operations and enhance their sustainability initiatives by reducing fuel, but it will also enhance the safety of freight operations.”

Controlguide CDS will enable faster decision-making and route optimisation across the CSX network by providing visibility into real-time operations. This includes the provision of an architecture stack and a granular visualisation of CSX’s Network Rail Operations.

By combining the real and digital worlds, this software aims to transform CSX’s everyday operations.

Carl Walker, Vice President of Engineering at CSX said:

“CSX has a long history of pioneering advanced technology to move our business – and our customers – forward. Our partnership with Siemens Mobility allows us to unleash the full potential of cutting-edge software solutions that help transform our operations to improve safety, service, sustainability and efficiency. Together, we are steering the future of rail transportation towards unparalleled efficiency and innovation.”
