Ceenex and partners aim to get rail back on track


(May 2010) Arlington, VA – Ceenex aligned with Maendeleo Ventures, LLC and its partners to provide solutions to the railroad industry. The joint offering, Maendeleo Rail, aim to leverage the Revolutionizing Rail strategy. Revolutionizing Rail is a holistic strategy for returning railroads to excessive profitability.

The Maendeleo Rail strategy (http://maendeleoventures.com/sectors/rail) is based on breakthrough innovations from engineers with over thirty years experience as executives and consultants. Maendeleo Rail’s people have worked on every continent and are located around the world. Maendeleo Rail uses a local approach with local partners, tailored to meet local challenges. Furthermore, Maendeleo Rail is not affiliated with any suppliers and is thus free from influence or ulterior motives.

Revolutionizing Rail aims to identify ways to increase revenue through better business plans, maximize operational capacity and improve safety and reduce operating costs through more realistic operating practices, improved modeling and common sense signaling. It reduces the risk of operating a railroad, allowing the railroad to better serve its customers.

Ceenex will provide its operational modeling capabilities, allowing Maendeleo Rail to cost-effectively investigate different opportunities. This will be done through application of Knowledge Based Optimization and Simulation (KBOS) to solve problems that happen in the real world using a virtual business. Advanced analytics and modeling tools enable opportunity identification and rapid analysis of expected impacts.
