Rocky Mountain Transportation Services is capable of offering tracing of railcars. This allows customers the ability to view the location of their railcars. We are capable of tailoring your fleet to satisfy your needs. If your equipment needs to be as a total fleet, we can set up by numeric or alpha, as you request. If you have need to specify certain railcars in different fleets, we are well capable of separating and reporting as you desire.
For Tankcars, this service is of the utmost importance. In order to alleviate or reduce the monetary liability of excess empty mileage, we are able to offer monthly reports on fleet to assist in reducing or budget planning the expense of equalization charged by railroads for excess empty mileage. We receive all railroad reports and assign each loaded and empty mile to each railcar in the customer’s fleet. Again, this can be tailored to assist in charges to each department, or as a whole fleet.
State Tax Returns
As explained above, each loaded and empty mile recorded by each railroad will be compiled into a fleet total. For every state that any railcar travels, we will prepare the necessary annual State Tax Return and disclose the total loaded and empty miles, as required, to States for Ad Valorem or other State taxes.
RMTS works hand in hand with railroads and shops to provide the most cost efficient and AAR approved maintenance for our customer’s equipment. We are able to discuss any repair issues with the repair facilities and are qualified in handling any issues with repairs or derailments on the railway system.
