Who we are

RDC is a global railway investment and management company, rooted in bold, ambitious partnerships. RDC is and has always been a family-owned business, putting people over profit and maintaining the highest integrity in everything we do. We invest in railway businesses, but ever more important is our investment in the people and partners who are advancing the industry towards the future.

We aspire to be the most respected railroad company in the world, one that people seek as the partner of choice. The partner that the industry continues to turn to for ambitious pursuits.

We’re only as strong as the partners who are building with us. When the right team of people is assembled, we are unstoppable. And we have the track record to prove it.

We look for the hidden value in markets across the world. We take on deals that others wouldn’t dream of. Many have said, “we’re the only folks crazy enough to do that.” But, we have courage to fail, and the humility in that we don’t know what we don’t know. But that’s how we keep learning.

We are boldly building new standards in the global rail industry by working alongside our partners, challenging each other in ways that allow us to make good decisions, and pursuing a prosperous future, together.

Safety drives Quality

Our philosophy is summed up with one word: Safety. Everything we do starts with safety. It is the backbone of every business we enter into. If you run a safe railroad, you run a profitable railroad.
