Nebraska Central Dispatching contract dispatching portfolio adds commuter, freight railroad

Fort Worth, Texas (Nov. 21, 2016) – Nebraska Central Dispatching Services (NCD), a provider of safe, reliable, around-the-clock rail dispatching services and wholly-owned by Rio Grande Pacific Corporation (RGPC), today announced the addition of two new dispatching partnerships. Denton County Transportation Authority’s (DCTA) A-train and the Dakota Southern Railway (DSRC) join NCD’s growing contract dispatching portfolio comprised of shortline, commuter and freight railroads. The Fort Worth-based dispatch center currently supports upwards of 1,100 crew starts on 2,000 miles of track, while typically issuing over 1,800 Track Warrants and 200 bulletins on a monthly basis.

NCD assumed contract dispatching services for DCTA on Oct. 1, 2016, and DSRC on Nov. 9, 2016.

“The goal of any dispatching team is to safely and efficiently dispatch any Railroad while trying to mitigate any delays,” said Tres Meyer, chief operating officer. “Our dispatching team consists of ten highly-qualified dispatchers with more than 100 years of combined experience on various Class 1, shortline and commuter railroads. But what really sets us apart from other dispatching services is our commitment to excellent customer service and our ability to dispatch anytime, anywhere in the world via cloud-based software. The addition of DCTA and DSRC provides a nice complement to our growing portfolio of dispatching partnerships, and we look forward to working with both lines.”
