to EPIRA (Electronic Purchasing & Invoicing Rail Application).
EPIRA was developed for companies that supply material to North
American railroads. This secure site allows you to receive stock and non-stock purchase
orders and send invoices over the Internet. The purchase order information is retained
on the site and may be converted into an invoice which can be sent to the customer in
To use EPIRA, you must be a registered user (see the
EPIRA Sign-up page). You will be provided
with a company ID and password in order to log onto the site. Each time you sign on,
you will be able to access and print new purchase orders, invoice existing purchase
orders, and review invoices already sent. You can also create and submit invoices
against any purchase order, regardless of how the order was received.
