Market Spotlight: Pipe

Released November 7, 2016 Article

Are you looking for a better way to ship pipe? UPDS, along with our parent company, Union Pacific Railroad, can help. With a rail-based solution, you can cut transportation costs and ultimately offer more competitive pricing to your customer.

Shipping by rail moves more product, more efficiently. Just one Union Pacific train can carry the freight of more than 300 trucks. Likewise, a single rail car can hold up to four times the freight of a single truck, lowering your unit costs.

We know how to handle a variety of pipe types and sizes, including:

  • OCTG pipe
  • Unfinished line pipe
  • Coated pipe

Regardless of whether you’ve shipped by rail before — or the origin or destination isn’t rail served — UPDS can design a solution to achieve your goals. We’ll coordinate the shipping, staging and storage of your product and ensure it gets to its final destination on time.
