Specialized Rail Service offers transload and storage services at two open-air facilities in the Salt Lake City area and in Las Vegas. For your convenience, we offer truckload delivery service from both locations with our fleet of tractors and flatbeds. In Utah, we have tri-axle and quad-axle trailers and drop-axle tractors that allow us to legally scale payloads from 60,000 to 70,000 lbs.
