RMI announced Monday it has entered into a new five-year agreement with Canadian National for use of its OASIS software for operational control of CN’s intermodal terminals.

Atlanta-based RMI noted that CN has been using OASIS since 1996 to provide “intelligent automation of intermodal terminal operations using sophisticated algorithms for solving logistical problems that arise in intermodal rail yards.” In addition to the operating system, CN uses RMI’s OASIS Vantage Business Intelligence interface for greater real-time visibility of intermodal operations.

“OASIS has worked extremely well for us for over a decade, and CN is pleased that RMI is committed to investing in the software to ensure it meets our needs in the future,” said CN’s Pierre Arsenault, general manager Systems Operations-Intermodal. “The integration of the latest version of OASIS Vantage for our new Gate Operations process has gone extremely well and clearly demonstrates for us that OASIS is the most innovative software for intermodal terminal management. We look forward to continuing to work with RMI as we continue to grow our intermodal business.”
