  • Frederick Intermodal of IMC Companies Wins Contract With BNSF In Memphis & St. Louis

    From the Journal of Commerce
    IMC Companies’ River City Maintenance & Repair Will Service the Memphis BNSF Facility

    (MEMPHIS, Tenn.) – Frederick Intermodal, a member of the IMC Companies family of brands, was awarded an expansion bid with the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Railway to repair all damaged equipment in the Memphis, Tennessee, and St. Louis, Missouri, hubs for the next five years. Frederick Intermodal will utilize River City Maintenance & Repair, also a member of the IMC Companies family of brands, to service the Memphis BNSF facility.

    “Our job is to support BNSF ramp operations by making sure that the chassis and trailers are repaired and available,” explained Frederick Intermodal president Joey Frederick. “By doing our job, cargo can be delivered on time – just one small part of the global supply chain.

    “This is a wonderful opportunity to continue our relationship with BNSF,” Frederick added, noting that Frederick Intermodal is also a vendor for BNSF in Houston, Texas; Ft. Worth/Alliance, Texas; Denver, Colorado; and Kansas City, Kansas.

    The contract began June 1 for both bids. Frederick Intermodal mechanics are already stationed at the BNSF facility in St. Louis, and River City Maintenance & Repair mechanics are at the BNSF facility in Memphis, Frederick noted.

    Tim Farrell, president of River City Maintenance & Repair, said he is thrilled to be part of this contract.

    “Anytime you have a five-year contract with a Class 1 Railroad, it’s a big deal,” Farrell said. “It’s a testament to the fact that we are more than our individual companies. We are partners in service, as we are part of a national family of brands that can service clients from coast to coast and beyond.”

    Frederick Intermodal and River City Maintenance & Repair employ more than 150 mechanics, who perform maintenance and repair services to intermodal equipment providers throughout the United States.
