Intermodal Rail Access
From ship to shore to rail, we keep your cargo moving
The New Orleans Terminal plays host to six Class 1 Rail Lines: CN, CSX Transportation, Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad, Union Pacific Railroad, Kansas City Southern Railway and Norfolk Southern Corp. With the formation of the New Orleans Intermodal rail ramp, conveniently located adjacent to the container marshaling yard, a “True” On-Dock-Rail facility was created to expedite direct movements of intermodal cargoes (inclusive of overweight shipments) direct to vessel yard stacks. This eliminates the trucking transport from ramp to terminal.
