After spending several years in the rail industry, The Hump Yard was created to mitigate what I always found to be a major issue within the industry, finding what you need when you need it.

With more than 600 railroads and several thousand other rail related businesses, simple tasks such as finding a transload site, railcar storage, securing equipment or finding someone to restencil cars in a timely manner, could take several days to weeks. With all the site searches, emails, phone calls, and waiting for someone to reach out to someone else and get back to you, your whole day can be spent working hard and having nothing to show for it. Meanwhile, your needs can become critical to the point that you have to jump on the first available offer without really knowing if there are better rates or locations out there.

Now, The Hump Yard is here to connect rail service providers and customers, ensuring you can find what you need when you need it.
