Genesee & Wyoming Inc. owns or leases more than 100 locally managed freight railroads worldwide with approximately 4,000 employees and 2,000 customers.

G&W railroads are recognized leaders in safety, with customer satisfaction that outperforms the trucking and overall rail industries. With the ability to make growth capital investments in support of customer projects, we seek long-term relationships with the customers served by our railroads, whether a family-owned lumber yard or a global mining company.

Many of our railroads offer connections with multiple Class I railroads for maximum flexibility in reaching any market. If your facility is not located on one of our railroads, you can still take advantage of freight-rail economics via one of our transload locations.
