Marketing and Sales

Develop plans to target and attract new industries to railroads.

  1. Property Study – We will visit the railroad and perform a traffic and business development study of the entire railroad. Also included would be a detailed breakdown of the existing industries and the potential for new traffic development with those industries.
  2. Industrial Site Locations – As part of the property study we will provide a list of industrial sites, reload/transload sites and industrial buildings on and near the property. This list will include local zoning, fire protection, proximity to highways and rail access.
  3. Warehousing – We will identify and prepare a detailed study of the available warehousing operators and/or potential warehousing/distribution clients. This will include input and interest from each of the potential distribution operators/owners.
  4. Transload/Reload – We will identify and prepare a detailed study of transload/reload operators and/or potential distribution clients. This will include input and interest from each of the potential distribution operators/owners.
  5. Non-Rail Users - We will perform traffic and business development study of area non-rail users Included would be a detailed breakdown of the existing inbound/outbound traffic, existing rail structure and the potential for rail traffic development including transload opportunities.
  6. Industrial Development Agencies: We will contact all applicable industrial development agencies to build awareness of the railroad and provide them with all necessary assistance to attach new industries to the railroad.
