Quickly Buy and Sell your Railcars With Customized Listings

The Commtrex Exchange provides customized electronic listings as an optimal method for sellers to market the availability of their railcars. Connect with the largest market of potential railcar buyers across multiple industries and locations. With our extensive reach, your railcar listings can get more exposure!

Sellers can create a railcar sale listing or browse buy requests to find buyers for any railcars they need to sell.

Buyers can search the 'For Sale' listings for current railcars available in The Marketplace. Listings can be added to a personal Watch List, or Buyers may contact a Commtrex agent for assistance. Buyers can also create a 'Wanted' request in The Marketplace to let sellers know what kind of railcars they are looking to buy.

Commtrex has made it easy to market and manage railcars, information, and deals in a convenient, secure location.
