HOW CAN WE HELP YOU?
We collectively have 30+ years of railroad experience. This includes field engineering, capital projects planning, track construction, terminal design and development, operations planning, business development, sales, marketing and freight rate negotiations. This diverse experience ensures that we have the knowledge base and connections to help you.
Engaging the railroads early in the site selection process is very important. Understanding their traffic patterns, train frequency (referred to as density), and knowing the capacity for local crews to serve the site you are looking at, are all crucial to the level of service you will receive.
The railroads will also give you insight on their minimum requirements for your site to be served, which can vary from a simple switch and adequate track to handle deliveries and outbound freight, to requiring you to build an entire siding to not interrupt their mainline traffic.
Engaging experts with Class I engineering, business development, and operations experience will ensure you make the process as seamless as possible.
