The TrinityRail Platform

The TrinityRail Platform and Operating Model

At Trinity, we are committed to Delivering Goods for the Good of All. Look around and you’ll see us. Your home and workplace? Our railcars have likely carried the materials that built them. The food on your family’s table? We may have delivered it from the farm to grocer. The car in your driveway? We likely transported and fueled it. Sparkling clean drinking water? That’s us too.

Our railcars play an important role in North America as they deliver essential goods that keep the economy moving and enrich the lives of people in communities across the continent. At Trinity, we remain committed to rail solutions that deliver goods— safely, efficiently, and sustainably - for the good of our customers, shareholders, and employees in all the communities we serve.

Delivering Goods for the Good of All is why we proudly come to work each day

Our Core Values are the foundational characteristics of our Company. We strive to live these Core Values throughout our daily work and interactions with each other, our customers, and our shareholders. Each serves as our cultural cornerstone and defines how we accomplish our purpose.  We align our business strategy with three broad initiatives: optimization, innovation, and customer experience - all with the goal to deliver superior returns to our stakeholders and achieve our overarching purpose of Delivering Goods for the Good of All.

The TrinityRail platform is designed to optimize the ownership and usage of railcars, enabling customers to devote more resources to their core competencies. The platform offers hundreds of different railcar designs that can be customized based on customer needs. It also offers a variety of railcar leasing alternatives and fleet management services, as well as railcar manufacturing, maintenance, repairs, and modification services. The components of the platform work synergistically, with the goal of providing an unparalleled customer experience. The strength and breadth of the platform position TrinityRail to provide value to customers throughout the railcar life cycle.

Each component of the TrinityRail platform has an important function that is essential to the platform's success. TrinityRail's commercial services team works collaboratively to develop packages of railcar products and services that meet customers' specific needs. Our railcar leasing and management services business provides opportunities for TrinityRail to engage with customers throughout the railcar life cycle, strengthening our relationships and creating a direct feedback loop that helps our businesses continuously refine and improve their products and services. Our leasing and management services business also generates recurring revenues and profits, providing a stable and growing source of cash flow.

Our product development and design professionals contribute to top-line growth by developing new railcar designs and features for customers. Our manufacturing businesses help optimize the ownership and usage of railcars by offering the broadest line of railcar equipment in the industry and by building high-quality products. TrinityRail's maintenance services business expands our service offerings to the owners and lessees of railcars. Our secondary railcar sourcing and sales team and our railcar ownership program for institutional investors provide important services that support the company's leasing, management, manufacturing, and maintenance operations.
