Port 10 Watco Rail Logistics — a joint venture between Watco, Pontikes Development and McNair Interests — recently opened a new storage-in-transit yard in Baytown, Texas.
Watco will provide switching operations for the yard, which features 420 rail-car spots, Watco officials said in a newsletter. The yard is near Port Houston and provides access to Union Pacific Railroad.
The yard will enable industrial customers to store empty and loaded rail cars outside of the industrial footprint, a more cost-effective and efficient way of maximizing production capabilities, according to project information released in 2022.
