LET PRECISION RUN YOUR RAIL, SO YOU CAN RUN YOUR BUSINESS

WHAT WE DO

Precision Rail Management Group provides highly tailored rail freight 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, t and 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 logistics (3PL) 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 technology to drive decisions and our rail acumen to deliver results.
