Logistical Efficiencies

Transportation costs are one of the biggest impacts to a company’s bottom line. Our multimodal terminal in Joliet, Illinois allows our clients to benefit from barge and rail quantity shipments. These modes of transportation are cost-effective, safe, and more environmentally friendly. In fact, one barge is roughly equivalent to 17 railcars or 70 truckloads.
