Rail Route Studies / Surveys - This service can be invaluable to determine the best possible route, as well as loading and unloading locations for extremely over-dimensional loads.
Engineering / Drawings - With experienced in-house AutoCAD trained employees and on-staff PE, we can generate detailed drawings that show how your cargo will be loaded and secured to the railcar.
Clearances - Rail clearance proposals are required for over-dimensional loads and are used to determine if a shipment can be cleared along a specific route. We submit the critical load information required by the railroad's clearance and engineering departments and work with them throughout the process to help get timely and comprehensive responses.
Insurance - We are able to provide additional rail cargo insurance for your load while being shipped on the railroads, through Cooper/T. Smith, our parent company.
Equipment - SRT owns (and operates) a 450-ton capacity 20-axle depressed center railcar and 3 cabooses. For shipments not requiring this equipment, we coordinate with railcar owners on a regular basis to obtain standard and other specialized railcars. Check out our Equipment.
Tiedowns / Certified Supervisors - We have AAR Certified welders and Supervisors with the necessary expertise to ensure that your cargo is properly secured - on time and in budget.
Rail Expeditor Service (Rail Rider) - For urgent shipments we offer a personal rail expeditor to travel with your cargo to help reduce transit time.
Daily Tracking Reports - Keeping up with multiple shipments can be a challenge, but by staying in constant contact with the railroads and other resources, we can provide daily email reports for empty and loaded cars.
GPS / Impact Recorders - We have state of the art GPS/Impact Recorder Units available to track and monitor your shipment.
Turn-key Pricing & Partnering - Partnering with heavy haul, rigging trucking and barge companies enables SRT Transportation Solutions to provide not only transport options by rail but comprehensive turn-key solutions to meet our customer's needs and expectations.
