As a result of established relationships with Class I railroads, our rail team is able to offer you rail service with competitive rates and freight management. Our logistics team communicates closely with the railroads to manage your shipment; they coordinate on both the loading and unloading of your cargo and track the status of your shipment during transport.
Our affiliated companies have over 14 owned and operated rail-loading facilities located on the Mississippi, Illinois, Ohio, and Arkansas rivers. With these assets, we are able to offer direct rail loading and/or unloading services with direct access to most Class 1 and several short line railroads that operate throughout North America. Ground, dome and silo storage are offered at many of our facilities.
Even further, through leases and ownership within our family of companies, we control approximately 700 rail cars that enable us to provide you with both rail equipment and logistics. We can dedicate our rail assets to your large volume projects offering you more control over the destiny of your shipment.
