Rail Transload Sites in Michigan and Indiana

Freight rail customers can escape high trucking rates and congestion and get competitive with multimodal shipping. We work with customers to transfer palletized goods, bulk products, petroleum products, and heavy materials like scrap, steel, and aggregate, and to and from trucks for delivery to their final destination.

Transload facilities can be easily developed or adapted for bulk commodities such as aggregates, lumber, scrap, food products, and others. The Indiana Northeastern can transload from virtually any site using forklifts, conveyors, pumps, cranes, and front-end loaders.

We currently offer transload services in Ashley, Hudson,  and Fremont Indiana, and Coldwater, Michigan, with additional sites planned for the future.
