Intermodal terminal opens in North Carolina
The Atlantic and Western Railway (ATW), part of G&W, recently opened a Choice Terminal bulk transload facility in Sanford NC (USA).
Choice Terminals are operated by G&W railroads and transfer bulk materials between railcars and trucks, providing customers that are not located directly on the railroad with the ability to reduce their transport costs by using rail.
The new Sanford terminal features a 20-car rail yard and truck-to-railcar transloading equipment, including a weighing scale. ATW interchanges with the class I railroads Norfolk Southern and CSX, thereby gaining access to North America's rail network. (ben)
