Yes, both options are available at your request. Ronsco work’s closely with our clients to evaluate their needs and pair an appropriate scenario.
Core exchange scenarios such as turn-for-turn are often the preferred method of railroads. Alternatively, our years of experience have facilitated a blended price model favoured by independent repair facilities. Lastly, we provide an outright purchase scenario with no obligation to return core materials.
Both models require the client to provide an equal number of wheelset cores in return of the turned sets issued by Ronsco.
Recognized as the preferred method of railroads, Turn-for-turn offers the lowest initial fee with a variable pricing system. Additional costs may be incurred when cores are deemed “non-turnable”. Final charges are issued once all cores are received and evaluated.
The blended model is favored by independent repair facilities as it offers a fixed fee. Regardless of the condition of customer cores, no additional costs will be incurred. Although the risk of back charges is removed, a blended model comes with substantially higher costs compared to turn-for-turn.
To speak with someone about the best model for your organization please contact us.
