Understanding Railcar Transloading Spill Containment

What is railcar transloading spill containment?

Transloading is the process of transferring liquids from railcars to trucks and vice versa. The federal government requires spill prevention containers or ā€œrailcar secondary containmentā€ to catch incidental spills that may occur during railroad transfer operations.

Do I need a railroad transloading plan?

Most transloading facilities need a transloading spill containment plan with railroad spill containment to meet federal safety guidelines. You need a transloading plan if there is a likelihood of oil discharge into local navigable waterways and if your facility handles petroleum and/or non-petroleum oils, among other criteria.
