Why Railserve?

A Marmon/Berkshire Hathaway Company

How is Railserve Different from other Rail Switching Service Providers?

Railserve differentiates itself by its approach to safety. Safety is not a program, it is a core value. Our behavior-based interviewing process develops a team of people with this crucial value. Our actions must show our commitment to safety. Our employees must believe it, and we must inspire others to share it.

We believe that all incidents are preventable. Proper procedures, good training and careful auditing ensure consistent, safe performance.

Railserve improves safe performance further by systematically adding technology. Technology is what makes our safety system real. Through several patented products, Railserve is well ahead of the industry standard. We continue to identify and apply solutions to achieve even better execution.

Moreover, we have salaried management personnel at each location. We also have Regional Leaders (of both Safety and Operations) who oversee 5–10 sites. Regional Leaders provide each site with support, encouragement, and direction.

We invest in our team by providing excellent compensation and benefits for all employees.

Railserve's parent company is the $8.0B Marmon Holdings Inc., a Berkshire Hathaway company. Marmon provides the financial support to invest in our customers’ growth. We are stable because we are well managed. We are well managed because we have qualified people and proven processes.
