Strategic Rail Finance, veteran advisory firm to the North American freight rail industry, is now offering an expanded suite of financial and operational solutions for manufacturers and industrial land developers through a new affiliate company, Strategic Rail Industrial, LLC. (SRI).
“Over the years Strategic Rail has advised rail shippers in finance, operations, public-sector engagement, and site selection. We are further leveraging our core competency at solving transportation problems and designing supply chains. SRI can now finance and operate the on-site rail solutions for our partners in freight-intensive industries,” said Taylor Rich, SRI president.
Joining Taylor at launch are a team of industry consultants which has successfully steered hundreds of private- and public-sector transportation projects. In addition to supply chain optimization and data-enabled site selection, SRI provides an integrated Purchase/Improve/Leaseback program for active rail shippers and a Design/Build/Operate platform for greenfield developments.
