7 days a week 12 hours a day, switches from CPR changes weekly and monthly so are adjusted for the volume being moved routinely. We can only handle cars to be loaded or unloaded at our site for repair. We would bring in a 3rd party to perform these tasks and a site fee may be charge from WIT for their services, time, and track space.
We started Weyburn Industrial Transload because we wanted to build a local business with a familiar face that the community could trust. This business is not about us, but our customers and the needs of our community.
We charge on a per tonne or per rail car basis. Prices can be adjusted for higher volume shipping and consistent monthly carloads. WIT generally likes to sign a minimum of 1 year deals with upwards to 3-5, to reflect the market and take advantage of any beneficial cost savings.
