Railcar Switching

Savage is one of North America’s premiere third-party rail switching companies, switching more than 700,000 railcars annually. With an in-house mechanical team and a robust safety program, we have the training and processes to protect our team and equipment—and yours.

Contact our team to inquire about assistance in securing funding for and procuring green locomotives.

Track Services

We provide single-source track services including design, engineering, and construction via Savage and CANAC; track upgrades and rehab; tamping and regulating; and scales calibration.

Once tracks are in place, we’ll help with maintenance, including in-plant railcar switching, transloading, railcar shipment tracking, warehousing, storage-in-transit yard operation, weighing, heating and cleaning, and fleet management.
