Storage Marketplace

The Commtrex Storage Marketplace is designed to successfully connect rail shippers and railcar owners to storage providers with capacity.

A map with several railcar storage locations selected. There is a holding area in the corner of the screen illustrating the different storage providers who will receive the storage request once submitted.

Save Time -- Request Storage from Multiple Storage Providers at One Time

Commtrex currently has over 130,000 storage spaces listed in The Exchange! And we simplify the searching, connecting, and negotiating processes for you. Our quick search form makes it easy to find Storage Providers by state, region, class I connection, and even additional rail services offered. Our interactive map allows for viewing specific locations in greater detail.

Once the desired locations are selected, a Storage Request can be sent instantly to multiple parties at the same time. Commtrex will then send an alert when a response is received and help you compare offers side-by-side.

Whether you need a large or small capacity storage yard, a facility that can store railcars with hazardous materials or hazardous residue, or any other special requirements you may have, reserving storage for your railcars has never been faster or easier!
