Enhanced Car Monitoring for Refrigerated Shipments
Union Pacific Railroad, along with our logistics management subsidiary, Union Pacific Distribution Services (UPDS), have teamed together to develop ShipmentVision Lite, a value-added, web-based monitoring tool to trace rail shipments moving in Union Pacific refrigerated boxcars.
