It has been a busy week at PFL for select car types and transactions getting completed. PFL is working with both Plastic pellet carriers and LPG loaded cars. We are also busy sorting out empty non-hazardous cars, getting them positioned for storage before return on lease. Some new cars are also heading to storage. The shippers are taking delivery but are not ready to put new cars into service. Sand cars have continued to leave storage and are moving all the sand they can handle. In addition, DOT 111’s and CPC1232’s are trying to find alternate services thus are getting cleaned and preparing to move out.

You might think that there is an inverse relationship between railcar shipments and railcar storage. Not so. You need to look at the commodity and car type, the growth or decline of the commodity by type, the seasonality or non-seasonality of the commodity by type and the car characteristics or mandated retrofits. These are the numbers that tell the real story and PFL is assisting both shippers and owners to find a competitive advantage in maintaining and improving their individual storage rent rolls.

PFL has a national perspective; an understanding of commodity movement, freight costs and the largest collection of railcar and storage data. Visa Via easyTRADE: the first ever electronic pricing and market platform for railcar leasing and storage where you can view what’s happening with rates across North America for storage and railcar leasing. Currently we have over 100,000 railcar storage spaces at our fingertips. We distribute our reports to over 9000 rail industry professionals. Call or e-mail PFL for a login.

Class 1 rail is the superhighway and wants to ship cars. Demurrage is code for “please ship your cars”. Short line rail is the origination or destination of the commodity and generally has storage and maintenance facilities. Knowing the type of storage and track infrastructure installed as well as the services available or not available, knowing the Class 1 connectivity or lack of connectivity are vitally important to making the best railcar storage decisions. PFL can help you reduce storage charges.

The overall, railcar storage market has seen a slight decline in some segments, while others remain robust and in high demand.

At PFL we have always warned fleet managers that storing cars with petroleum residue over the long term will slowly destroy the cars. Corrosive commodities left inside a car will destroy the interior of the car. For those who currently have cars in storage, it is important to note that leasing companies will not accept cars that have corrosion damage. Very expensive blasting is required to make a car suitable for return or new service and effectively doubles the cost of cleaning a fleet, compared to getting the job done before they are stored for months at a time. What we are warning you today is the longer you leave a car uncleaned, the problem gets worse. Please don’t assume that “the damage is already done, so I can wait”. It will only get more expensive and in some cases catastrophic. Call PFL now we can clean your cars today.

PFL has exclusive representation for railcar storage, mobile cleaning, mobile maintenance, and car scrapping. Why negotiate with 4 different companies when we offer a total turnkey approach? Call PFL today.

PFL expanded our EASY-TRADE platform to be the one stop shop for finding and securing railcar storage.

PFL would like to remind all fleet managers that storing cars with petroleum residue over the long term will slowly destroy the cars. Corrosive commodities left inside a car will destroy the interior of the car. For those who currently have cars in storage, it is important to note that leasing companies  will not accept cars that have corrosion damage. Very Expensive blasting is required to make a car suitable for return or new service and effectively doubles the cost of cleaning a fleet compared to getting the job done before they are stored months at a time. If you are looking to store cars with remaining residue, or have dirty cars already in storage we can arrange for these cars to be cleaned in a cost effective manner.
