In March 2016, the company began outsourcing railcar maintenance to reduce operating expenses. There are three phases to this report. First, the transition from insourcing to outsourcing maintenance was audited. Second, the best practices of railcar leasing companies in North America and Europe were researched. Third, recommendations for Brunswick Rail were derived.
