Travero Logistics, a subsidiary of Alliant Energy, last week announced construction has been completed on Logistics Park Cedar Rapids in Iowa.

The site is the newest and largest rail-served public warehouse and transload facility, located within Alliant Energy’s Big Cedar Industrial Center, Travero officials said in a press release.

The 259,000-square-foot, food-grade-certified warehouse with 32-foot-tall ceilings includes 39 loading bays for trucks and four rail-car docks.

The facility’s rail customers will have a direct connection to the national rail network via the affiliated Cedar Rapids and Iowa City Railway Co. Ports on the Mississippi River, such as Travero’s Logistics Park Dubuque, are also in close proximity and can be reached by truck or rail.

The facility also serves as Travero’s new corporate headquarters and houses the Cedar Rapids-based team of Travero Logistics, the freight brokerage and third-party logistics services division of Travero, to give customers the added convenience of an experienced full-service logistics partner at the same location.
