SRT was recently tasked with transporting an LP rotor shipment from the Eastern United States to a nuclear power plant in the Pacific Northwest. SRT coordinated with three railroads and worked through severe weather conditions, which caused delays in the form of broken rails. Due to the cargo’s sensitive nature, it could not be handled like most railcars, so a Rail Expeditor was contracted to travel with the shipment and communicate with the crews at each railyard to ensure it was handled safely. Thanks to SRT’s expert planning, the shipment was delivered ahead of schedule and on budget.
