Company partnerships can enhance service for customers.
Holland and Cordel announced their new partnership to expand Holland’s suite of track measurement services to now include LiDAR technology.
Holland’s LiDAR powered by Cordel provides customers with a range of data applications such as track imagery, clearance validation, line of sight measurements, condition assessments and more. Using track geometry and LiDAR data applications, customers can see a digital twin of their infrastructure and make the most of their track inspections. By coupling Cordel’s LiDAR equipment with Holland’s already in-service track inspection vehicles, customers can maximize their inspection data without the need for additional track time.
“It’s an exciting time for our customers to experience even more data provided to our already existing suite of track measurement products and services. We’re excited to combine our best-in-class track inspection services with the best-in-class LiDAR technology.” Said Russ Newberg, Holland’s Director of Operations, Rail Measurements Systems and Services division.
“Holland has a rich product portfolio and has earned a well-deserved reputation for integrity and customer service, and we’re proud to be associated with that. Combining Cordel’s automated LiDAR solutions with Holland’s comprehensive track inspection services on the same vehicles delivers more efficiency and value to railroads said Nick Wayne, Cordel’s Vice President for the Americas.
While Holland is primarily known in the rail industry for being the premier provider of flash-butt welding rail services, Holland’s track measurement systems and services has grown throughout the years. Holland is proud to offer customers a range of track measurement data from contract testing services, to the new gauge inspector, track inspector and locomotive UGMS.
Ken Faanes, Holland’s Chief Sales Officer, added: “Our primary goal is to provide our customers with data filled track inspection services and products so that railways all over North America can be as safe as possible. This partnership allows us to go a step further in ensuring our railroad partners can safely operate and make the most of their capital funds when it comes to repairs.”
