Precision Rail Management Group Has Been Acquired by Commtrex

4/11/2022 - We are thrilled to announce that we have been acquired by Commtrex, the largest tech-enabled rail logistics platform empowering shippers to find and connect with transload services, storage locations, lessors, and a wide range of service providers. We believe that our combined capabilities will further enhance our ability to simplify the process of shipping by rail.

Precision Rail Management Group provides highly tailored rail freight and railcar fleet management services to shippers and receivers who seek to save time, reduce administrative costs, improve velocity, and mitigate risk.

Our combined 20+ years of working for railroads and interfacing with customers has taught us that shipping by rail can be complicated and that effectively managing the lifecycle of a rail shipment takes a considerable amount of time, and requires a high level of rail expertise. Often, shippers and receivers don’t have either. And that’s okay because they have more strategic priorities. This is why PRMG exists. We partner with companies to run their rail logistics programs so they can run their business. 

As a third party rail logistics provider, our goal is to facilitate the safe and fluid movement of railcars across the rail network without incident. We call this Rail Made Right. To do this, we leverage best-in-class technology to drive decisions and our rail acumen to deliver results.
