Railcar Cleaning & Light Repairs
Railcars are responsible for transporting some of the most dangerous chemicals in the largest quantities within the bulk transportation industry. Quala’s Rail department is your trusted partner when it comes to keeping your Railcars moving forward.
Transloading is the process of transferring a shipment from one mode of transportation to another. It is used when downsizing from larger quantities of bulk goods to smaller containers. Our unique location in Texas is able to offer transloading from Railcar to Semi-Tank Trucks.
Specialty Rail Chemical Cleaning
The Specialty Cleaning Department operates a full-service state-of-the-art cleaning facility specializing in difficult cleaning projects requiring advanced cleaning techniques or involving compounds with severe exposure or vapor control issues.
“When it comes to Railcar Cleaning and Maintenance,
we are resourceful and driven to be the best.”
