Industries We Serve

Canada has a large, well-developed and, for all but small sections of industry and commuter rail, standardized rail system.  It’s a system that moves more than $250 billion of product and 75 million people every year.  It’s also a system that serves a broad and diversified spectrum of industries, as vast as Canada’s borders and as diversified as the industries alive and well within them. 

At Universal Rail Systems, we are proud to operate as Canada’s #1 choice for fully-integrated, turnkey railway services and solutions.  In fact, our operations were set up to mirror and serve the breadth and diversity of Canada’s industries that operate rail lines or are served by rail yards and terminals. 

The industries we serve include:

We also have specialized capabilities within several of these industries, particularly as they relate to civil management solutions.  Our civil construction team, housed within Universal Civil Management, offers a full spectrum of railway project management, construction and earthworks services that apply to our rail clients, including Class 1, Short Line, industries served by rail, and transit, as well as companies investing in projects and requiring civil management solutions in the mining and oil & gas sectors.
