Tradepoint Atlantic appoints Thomas to oversee short line's development

Paul Thomas has been named terminal manager for Tradepoint Atlantic's short line in Baltimore, the organization announced yesterday.

In his new role, Thomas will be responsible for developing an operating and capital investment strategy for Tradepoint's railroad, Tradepoint officials said in a press release.

Thomas has more than 10 years of experience in sales, analytics and operations in the transportation industry. Most recently, he served as manager of business development, international sales and ports, at CSX. He also served in a variety of other roles at the Class I, including trainmaster, for which he received a Service Star Award for providing excellent customer service while operating the Fulton Yard location in Richmond, Va.

"As Tradepoint Atlantic continues its growth plan toward becoming one of North America's leading global transportation and logistics hubs, Paul Thomas brings top-shelf experience and knowledge of ports and world markets, and we welcome his critical leadership skills in developing our short line railroad," said Michael Moore, chief executive officer of Tradepoint Atlantic.

Formerly known as Sparrow's Point Terminal, Tradepoint Atlantic is a 3,100-acre multimodal industrial site that features access to deepwater berths, railroads and highways.
