Transport order for US short line railroad in Georgia
Omnitrax is shouldering rail transport for Georgia-Pacific’s new lumber plant in Albany GA (USA). The pulp and paper company will connect a rail track from its facility to the mainline of the Omnitrax affiliate, Georgia & Florida Railway (GFRR), in the adjacent Albany-Dougherty industrial park. Construction work on the new rail line is about to begin and is due to finish later this year.
Once in production, the new Georgia-Pacific facility will produce 300 million board-feet of lumber a year. This translates to more than 1,250 railcars of building materials and wood chips transported on the GFRR per year.
The GFRR network encompasses 360 km of track between Albany and northwestern Florida. (ben)
