John McArthur, Chief Executive Officer of Tracsis, commented: "This contract is a significant milestone for Tracsis and demonstrates our long held belief that our planning software is applicable to other transport verticals.
"The rail freight market holds a great opportunity for the group both in the UK and overseas and is a sector that is not burdened by the current hiatus relating to passenger franchising. We are confident this will be the first of a number of sales to freight operators, and hope to develop other complementary products to these customers in the fullness of time."
Tracsis' share price was up 2.27% to 158p at 09:15 on Friday.
