How to access OmniTRAX-owned real estate
Beyond just making shipping by rail as easy as possible, we strive to make all aspects of dealing with rail simple and painless. Quite possibly one of the most cumbersome interactions one can have with railroads is when you need access to the area around the tracks themselves. Whether you need to install utility lines or build a road over tracks, we will help you make that easy too. First, we will need to know what you would like to do (i.e. lay pipes or wires along the tracks, dig on our land, etc.). Next, we will have you fill out the application that best suits your needs from the list below and submit it to us according to the instructions on the respective cover sheet. Once we have all of your information, we will give you a call and walk you through the process. That’s it! If you have any questions about how to access OmniTRAX-owned real estate, give us a call or send us an email.
