Intermodal: UP to open Tucson terminal next month

On April 19, Union Pacific Railroad plans to open an intermodal facility in Tucson, Ariz.

Located in Century Park Research Center, the 30-acre "Port of Tucson" terminal will feature a state-of-the-art storage and distribution facility, two-mile and 3,000-foot sidings, and concrete docks designed for cross-dock and transloading operations.

UP expects to complete construction April 15. When expanded to 100 acres in several years, the terminal will handle 75,000 lifts annually.

Port of Tucson is located near UP's southeast Tucson mainline and within a Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ), which will enable the railroad to ship and receive in-bond products and raw materials with FTZ status (eliminating federal duties placed on the freight).
