Kaleris Expands Maintenance & Repair Solutions to Container, Trailer, and Chassis

Kaleris announced today a strategic investment in the Intermodal Maintenance and Repair System (IMRS) founded by Buckeye Mountain.

IMRS serves Class 1 Railroads, Intermodal Terminals, Container Depots, Intermodal Equipment Providers, Ports and Marine Terminals, and Maintenance & Repair providers. With this investment, Kaleris will accelerate its expansion into the intermodal market and add mission-critical software capabilities for containers, chassis, and trailer maintenance, repair, and operations.

“The Kaleris team is enthusiastic about the addition of IMRS to our Supply Chain Execution platform. Today’s complex supply chain challenges require innovative solutions, like IMRS and Kaleris, that improve asset utilization and visibility into operations,” said Kirk Knauff, CEO of Kaleris. “This investment will allow us to provide exciting new capabilities across multiple segments of our business focused on solving customer challenges in the intermodal supply chain ecosystem. We will continue to invest in offerings that help our customers accelerate their operations and remove friction points in the supply chain.”

IMRS is an enterprise-grade system with full industry and intermodal technology integration, providing a flexible, modern web interface and intuitive mobile application to automate and streamline full-cycle intermodal maintenance and repair workflow including inspection, repair, invoicing, rebilling, and compliance. IMRS ensures maintenance and repair operations are fast, industry compliant, and error-free while eliminating paper-based systems, manual record-keeping, and spreadsheets.
