How Legal Teams in Railroads Can Gain Control Over the Contracting Process With Contract Intelligence

Contracts sit at the core of the railroad ecosystem. Anything from maintenance of a track under the obligations of a lease agreement, to right-of-way contracts or settling of employee litigation requires that a contract be drafted, approved, signed, stored, and potentially accessed again at a future date. This makes effective contract management vital for railroads to meet minimum regulatory criteria, understand market value, and mitigate legal risks.

And legal teams are the custodians of the contract.

With a market valuation of nearly $80 billion (Freight Railroad Administration), the U.S freight rail industry has witnessed a significant transformation through the digitalization of its business processes. Despite the technological advancements made by railroads today, many companies still rely on Excel, SharePoint, and other tools (such as content management systems) to handle rail contracts.
