Get to Know Loup’s Carload Team: A Day in the Life of a Loup Carload Marketing Manager

Released November 09, 2020


Meet Dana Ratcliff. She’s a Loup Carload Marketing Manager, who has worked for Loup and our parent company Union Pacific Railroad for a combined total of 13 years, with the last year and a half spent at Loup. Dana is a fourth generation Union Pacific railroader, so working at the railroad is, as she puts it, “kind of in my blood.”

As a Carload Marketing Manager, Dana’s responsibilities include combining trucking, rail transloading, and rail rates into one seamless package for Loup customers.

On a day-to-day basis, Dana:

  • Helps non-rail served customers and receivers access the benefits of rail
  • Coordinates with vendors
  • Designs door-to-door solutions using rail
  • Captures new business opportunities

“What I find rewarding about my job is the teamwork between marketing and sales and how we celebrate every win,” Dana said. “I am also grateful for the relationships I have built within Loup and UP the past thirteen years.”

In her free time, Dana enjoys spending time with her husband Scott and their two kids, William and Emmy. Before the pandemic, she also enjoyed attending Iowa State football games and traveling during the summer.
