Through its Fleet management program Western Fuels Association provides comprehensive and hands on oversight of your rail fleet, ensuring maximum efficiency and availability.
Utilizing a network of repair shops with pre-negotiated hourly rates, Western Fuels has the ability to pick and choose based on the type of maintenance or repair, available space and shop capabilities. We are physically present during each scheduled maintenance ensuring that only necessary repairs are performed while auditing the quality of repair in real time.
Western Fuels orders replacement parts directly from the manufacturer or vendor, eliminating the potential of additional mark-up by the shop. We also perform exhaustive audits of repair bills to ensure compliance with AAR Field and Office Manuals and to eliminate duplicate repairs, duplicate billing and billing repairs made under warranty.
Fleet management is a material, cost-cutting component complementing our full service menu.
