Regulatory Services

Owning, operating, leasing, repairing and/or offering a railcar into transportation doesn’t have to be a complicated business.

About Us

Greenbrier Management Services, and its parent, Greenbrier Companies, provides professional leadership in the design, development, manufacture, maintenance, and repair of all types of railroad rolling stock. As one of North America’s largest car builders, Greenbrier employs well-known and globally respected experts in the transportation field. The group maintains academic and nationally accredited credentials in rail car engineering, inspection, welding, weld engineering, coating systems, non-destructive testing, and quality assurance.

GMS is a member of the Railway Supply Institute (“RSI”) and an associate member of the Association of American Railroads (“AAR”). GMS through the RSI, has a voting seat on the AAR’s Tank Car Committee, and we actively participate in both the executive and subcommittee sessions. GMS also maintains membership in the “Chlorine Institute” (“CI”), the “Sulphur Institute,” the “American Society of Quality,” “American Society for Non-destructive Testing,” “American Welding Society,” “Mechanical Association Rail Technical Services” (Board Member), and “NACE International” (i.e., National Association of Corrosion Engineers). These associations and businesses help ensure that GMS and our customers remain focused and informed of any upcoming regulatory or industry change that may affect your rail fleet operations.
