Rail Services

Even the railroads don’t like the first mile and last mile. We can make sure you deliver critical cargo for your Customers—safely and on time. We do in-plant switching, direct-to-locomotive fueling, terminal operations, product transloading, railcar maintenance and services, track design and construction, rail logistics, and much more. Our team also is experienced in operating short line railroads. We take care of the details, so you can focus on your business.

Railcar Switching

Savage is one of North America’s premiere third-party rail switching companies. We switch over 700,000 railcars annually and have a dedicated mechanical team to ensure our locomotives are always ready to perform. We have a robust safety program with training and processes to keep our team and equipment (or yours) safe and sound.

Locomotive Fueling & Service

Think of it as a pit stop for locomotives. Our proprietary Locomotive Fueling & Service Trucks (LFST) handle direct-to-locomotive fueling, the on-track delivery of fuel, lube oil, sand and water, and the removal of waste. Our unique fuel tracking system gives you real-time data on your fuel levels and locations. We can also clean the cab, do light maintenance and inspections, and deliver fuel to storage.

Railcar Services

Our railcar service capabilities include in-plant railcar switching, loading and unloading, transloading, warehousing, storage-in-transit yard operation, weighing, heating and cleaning, fleet management, maintenance and inspection, and railcar shipment tracking.

Track Services

We provide single-source track services including inspections; cleaning and repair; track design, engineering and construction; track upgrades and rehab; tamping and regulating; and scales calibration.

Railcar Shipment Tracking

Our Railcar Management System (RMS) technology helps you track your rail cars at every step of the journey, providing real-time data from more than 550 railroads. By increasing your visibility, RMS simplifies your job, saves you time, and increases your productivity.
