New Cold Train office to open in Chicago


Rail Logistics LC recently announced it will open a new Cold Train office later this year in downtown Chicago to help administer the hauling of cargo from the Midwest and East Coast to Washington state and Oregon.

Cold Train recently tripled the size of its Quincy, Wash.-based refrigerated container fleet to 300 53-foot refrigerated containers. As a result, Cold Train is continuing to expand its service area. It also plans to increase westbound capacity for products originating in the Midwest and on the East Coast heading to the Pacific Northwest.

Rail Logistics launched the Cold Train Express Intermodal Service in partnership with BNSF Railway Co. and the Port of Quincy in 2010. Cold Train departs from, and arrives at, the Port of Quincy Intermodal Terminal six days a week. It takes four to five days to travel between Washington state and the Midwest, and six to seven days from Washington state to the East Coast.
