What to look for when searching for Railcar Repair Facilities

When researching for railcar repair facilities there are many factors to take into account. From heavy repairs to standard inspections, every service provider offers a unique set of service specializations. Therefore, working to identify the full-scope of your railcar repair and maintenance needs will help frame the search in which Class I connections to choose. For example, making sure that a Class I railroad interchanges with service providers that are certified in handling hazardous materials can heavily influence which route to take. Experienced shippers understand their railroad car repair facility needs, but it is often challenging finding the ones that best meet those needs.
