Our platform combines cutting-edge hardware with advanced software to deliver unparalleled performance and reliability, empowering railroad companies to streamline their operations and maximise profitability.

Features our Fuel Management System Software

  1. Fuel Management Systems (FMS) – Banlaw’s FMS is designed to provide railroads with complete control over their fuelling operations. Our system includes precision instrumentation, such as automatic tank gauging and flow control technology, to accurately monitor fuel levels, track fuel consumption, and prevent overfills or spills. By ensuring efficient fuel management, railroads can minimise fuel wastage, reduce operational costs, and maintain regulatory compliance.
  2. ResTrack RMS Software – Our ResTrack RMS software serves as the backbone of our management platform, offering comprehensive data management and reporting capabilities. With ResTrack RMS, railroad companies can access real-time insights into fuel usage, track fuel inventory levels, and generate detailed reports for regulatory compliance and financial analysis. The software also enables seamless integration with existing railroad management systems, providing a centralised platform for managing fuel-related data.
  3. RFID Technology – Banlaw’s management platform incorporates RFID technology for automatic identification of vehicles, equipment, and personnel involved in fuelling operations. RFID tags are installed on fuelling equipment and vehicles, allowing for secure and efficient fuel dispensing and tracking. By leveraging RFID technology, railroads can improve operational efficiency, enhance security, and minimise errors in fuelling processes.
  4. Audit-Ready Data – Our management platform generates audit-ready data that meets the stringent requirements of regulatory agencies and industry standards. By maintaining accurate records of fuel transactions, inventory levels, and compliance activities, railroad companies can streamline the auditing process and demonstrate adherence to regulatory guidelines.
