After the ties have been removed from the ground we load and transport them to one of our facilities located across the United States. There they are processed – sorted, graded, bundled, and banded. Through a defined quality control process we apply consistent grading standards across our facilities.
Ties are bundled in groups of 16 – each bundle weighing 2,300-2,500 pounds. Bundles are wrapped with two high-strength poly bands on each end and wood runners on the bottom to allow for safe and easy loading with forklift type equipment. Our high quality banding keeps packaging uniform and secure during transport.
