National Steel Car Supports Harmonized Flammable Liquid Regulations
National Steel Car was one of the first companies to express its support and commitment to the harmonized regulations in regard to the next generation of safer and stronger rail tank cars used in transporting flammable liquids in North America.
According to Gregory J Aziz, being one of the largest rail manufacturers in North America, they commend and welcome the leadership provided by Minister Lisa Raitt and Anthony Foxx, US States Secretary of Transportation on this important safety issue. Recent railroad accidents in the United States and Canada have brought to the fore the importance of ensuring that the rail system in North America is as safe as it can possibly be.
