"Proudly Serving for 25 Years"

GREAT FREIGHT...        
The Arkansas and Missouri Railroad is an independent, Class III railroad serving a 139 mile corridor from Fort Smith, AR to Monett, MO. Click here to see a full system map. Together with our affiliates, we are committed to continually improving our transportation services for the long-term success of the Company and the communities we serve.

We are somewhat unique in our industry in offering a wide breadth of transportation services and choices. Our bread-and-butter railcar freight business provides our customers with choice through three Class I railroad interchanges (BNSF, UP and KCS). Additionally, we can supply railcars for our direct customers’ or others’ use on reasonable terms.

Working with several business partners, we also move freight in tandem with barges traveling the Arkansas River. For customers not directly located on our line, our affiliates and third parties provide rail service through transloading of goods to and from trucks.

Our affiliate, Ozark Transmodal, Inc. (OTI) supplies these transloading services at Fort Smith and Springdale, AR with specially designed facilities. OTI can also store customers’ goods in a modern, 40,000 square foot warehouse in Fort Smith that is easily accessible to interstate highways. With OTI’s local truck hauling services, we offer a full range of logistics choices to our valued clients.

At Gateway, AR (on the Missouri state line), OTI offers concrete sand for sale to customers in far northwest Arkansas and southwestern Missouri. OTI now also offers truck hauling of sand for a total delivery system.  If you have freight to move, contact us.
