Rethinking trackbed inspectionZetica Rail is a leading provider of trackbed condition measurement services and systems. Our customers are located in five continents including North America, Europe, the Middle East, the Far East, Australia and Africa.
The company's trackbed condition metrics help make sense of trackbed conditions, identifying the root causes of problems, prioritising areas requiring remedial work and cutting the cost of maintenance.
Three levels of service are provided by the company including:
- Full Service: Experienced staff design a survey, collect data and process the data.
- Assisted Service (railroads): Customers purchase hardware to collect data and Zetica process the data.
- Ownership (railroads): Customers purchase both hardware and software to provide the full service within their own business.
