Norfolk Southern opens bulk transfer terminal in South Carolina


Norfolk Southern Railway yesterday announced it opened a new Thoroughbred Bulk Transfer (TBT) terminal in Columbia, S.C.

Located less than two miles from Interstate 26 and near Columbia Metropolitan Airport, the terminal can handle various dry and liquid bulk commodities, such as flour, sugar, plastic pellets, aggregates, steel and lumber. The TBT terminal features five acres of paved areas and a certified truck scale, and is operated by RSI Leasing Inc.

Operated by independent contractors, TBT terminals enable customers to transfer an array of commodities between rail cars and trucks. NS owns a network of 31 TBT facilities in 17 states.

"The facilities allow customers without rail sidings to receive the benefits of rail economics and service quality," NS officials said in a press release.
