What makes Madison RR Transload different from other transloaders?
- We are the City of Madison’s hometown railroad so serving our customers and providing transportation solutions to customers in our community is what we are all about. We are a small company that was founded on the premise of serving the City of Madison and our region with transportation solutions that are not available elsewhere. To do this, we offer all of our services to be flexible and personalized, with rail operations specifically tailored to our customers ’ ever-changing needs. We have the added benefit of being headquartered locally and are available all hours of the day. Our team is small and takes tremendous pride in our company and the services we provide.
What are you seeing in the market? When do you see markets coming back?
- We see the growth of transloading as a big solution to the changes happening in the marketplace in our area. So many of the issues we see with existing shippers are challenges taking place in the trucking industry. Many of the shippers in our area who use other transload facilities are doing so from facilities that are just too far away and have not been able to provide the flexibility that this year has required of them. Added restrictions on trucking, especially this year, have increased the pressure on us to provide transloading solutions closer to home.
Are there any new projects or developments that Madison RR Transload is working on now?
- We are working on increasing our transload space and design which will allow us to transload commodities that we cannot handle right now.
What is Madison RR Transload currently doing in transloading?
- We transload oversized equipment (transformers) and plastics. Right now we are also working with customers to begin transloading additional commodities.
Is there something you would like to share with our members that people may not know about your company?
- Our company is owned by the City of Madison Port Authority which allows us the flexibility to place all of our emphasis on our customers and their needs. We are much more flexible without the corporate constraints many other companies face.
