FreightCar America designs and manufactures steel, stainless steel, aluminum, and hybrid steel-aluminum freight cars that transport a wide variety of bulk commodities, containerized freight and other products.
We manufacture a wide variety of railcar types for the transportation of bulk commodities and containerized freight, including open top hoppers, covered hoppers, and gondolas along with intermodal and non-intermodal flat cars. In many instances, these railcars include the application of our patented, one-piece center sill, the main longitudinal structural component of the railcar. The one-piece center sill weighs significantly less than traditional multiple-piece center sills, providing higher carrying capacity and enhanced railcar productivity. We also refurbish and rebuild railcars and sell forged, cast and fabricated parts for the railcars we produce, as well as those manufactured by others.
Below is a list of the major types of railcar products that we offer. As part of our dedication to customer service, any of our railcar products may be further developed to meet the specific characteristics of the bulk or containerized freight being transported–as well as any other customized requirements or specifications required by our clients.
