KCS adds Texas terminal to transload network (6/15/2005)


Kansas City Southern recently opened the Bronco Road Rail Terminal in Corpus Christi, Texas — the newest facility in the Class I’s TransLoad Center (TLC) network.

Located less than two miles from a Texas Mexican Railway Co. yard, the 110-acre terminal features 160 car spots and equipment designed to handle various dry and liquid products. Currently, the facility handles petroleum coke, rock and grain.

The TLC also offers a fleet of 100 aluminum open-top hoppers with a per-car capacity of 100 tons.

Through its TLC program, KCS partners with logistics, trucking and warehousing firms to provide distribution and consolidation services. The program offers a single-bill, door-to-door service package including rail, trucking and warehousing services.
