accessNS offers you several ways to manage your shipments while they are on the NS.
Customized reports provide parameter-driven custom reports that provide critical information about your rail shipments regardless of the location. Customers can generate reports containing real-time equipment location information at the click of a mouse. This information can be delivered as a fax report, export to EXCEL, as a PDF, an email report, or even a comma-delimited file. Information returned to your Internet browser will provide hyperlinks to review waybill information; movement histories, UMLER information, and trip plan information. All of this information can printed to you local printer.
Examples of Customized Reports include:
- Terminal Summary
- Pick-Up Numbers
- Unit Arrival
- Unit Departure
Intermodal Trace is only slightly different than our carload equipment tracking functions listed below in the Demand Trace section. Intermodal trailers, containers, or chassis can be entered or displayed depending on how you do your business. If you are tracking your Intermodal equipment by railcar, that information can be used as well.
Demand Trace allows the input of 1 - 1000 shipments for an immediate update on current status. The entry is very flexible and supports equipment ID listings through cut and paste, avoiding the need to retype equipment IDs. The listings can be stored for use by other accessNS users in your company or as personal lists available only to you. Additional capabilities are also available to view multiple moves for the equipment as well as UMLER information. Your equipment can be tracked while moving on rail through this application via our link to the Association of American Railroads even if Norfolk Southern is not providing the transportation.
