Formed in 2014 by industry railcar veterans, Freedom Railcar Solutions provides mobile railcar repair and maintenance services for crude-by-rail shippers, operators and other railcar lessors. Our main objective is to minimize railcar downtime by providing safe, reliable and rapid service where and when our customers need it.
When railcars are sent to full service repair shops, downtime can average 90 days because most third-party repair shops are located out of state and provide limited mobile service. The total cost associated with a crude oil tank car that is out of service for 90 days is an estimated $100,000 per car, including lost revenue, cleaning, repairs and freight charges. To address this problem, our initial state-of-the-art mobile repair units are strategically located to ensure rapid response times directly to a railcar’s location. Our prompt travel times and dependable service minimize railcar downtime, offering considerable savings to our customers.
Freedom Railcar is a next generation company with a customer-driven approach to railcar repair and maintenance. Our high level of customer service and responsiveness set us apart. We measure our success by our customers’ success, which means safety and reliability define our approach to high-quality railcar services.
