Have you or someone you know come to the end of the line running a rail transportation business? Does finding someone to buy your business seems too daunting? Synergy Business Brokers has the experience and resources to help get the job done.

Business Broker to Sell a Rail Transportation Business

Our senior business brokers have sold companies in a variety of transportation sectors, including rail transportation. So rest assured that we will be able to help sell your rail railway production business. Whatever you specialize in, we can help sell your business. Synergy has potential buyers for companies in:

  • Heavy rail
  • Inner city rails
  • High-speed rails
  • Mono rails
  • Mountain rails
  • Passenger trains
  • Freight Trains
  • Intermodal Shipping


Synergy Business Brokers has experience selling railway transport businesses and can help you find a buyer. We have a database of over 30,000 potential buyers and know how to weed out those that aren't qualified. However, we can't identify these buyers without knowing what makes your business so unique. Synergy needs to look at the niches that your company specializes in and how it became so successful. How many hours does the active owner work? Do you have recurring customers? Do you rent or own your equipment? The answers to these questions may vary in the buyer pool that takes an interest in your successful railway company.

Synergy provides free, confidential consultations to all qualified sellers. We only deal with companies with an owner's net profit of $250,000 to $15 Million, so if you qualify, we'd love to hear more about your business. To give you a proper evaluation, we need to take a look at the last three years' tax returns as well as P&Ls and a year-to-date income statement. Once we have everything in front of us, we use our discernment and past experience to generate a number that we think would appeal to the market. Synergy develops a confidential information memorandum (CIM) to fill in any interested parties without giving away any sensitive information before someone has signed a confidentiality agreement.

Synergy only gets paid once your rail transportation company is sold. We invest time and money into marketing your business with no up-from-fee from you. Our brokers are thorough when qualifying potential buyers and have them sign NDAs before sending them information on your company. We find that the more seriously interested parties there are, the better. Sellers can have more negotiating power if they have multiple offers.

Buyers for Freight Train companies

There are many ways to close a deal, and Synergy can find the right move to get that job done. Our buyer pool is filled with buyers who have the cash on hand to purchase at closing, but for those who don't, we can get them the financing needed to get them where they need to be. We see buyers of all shapes and sizes. They vary from wealthy individuals to private equity firms to existing players in the rail transportation business. No matter the audience, we will find you the right fit for your business.

The market size of the rail transportation industry in the U.S. alone has been growing around 3.4% a year between 2017 and 202s and is expected to increase by 11.5% in 2022. This anticipated jump in the industry is a good thing for the market as buyers tend to invest in sectors that are on the upswing.
