3PL opens inland port near BNSF's Dallas terminal


Third-party service provider Trans-Trade recently opened an operations center in Alliance, Texas, adjacent to the BNSF Railway Co.’s intermodal facility.

Certified as a foreign trade zone and operated as an inland port, the center features warehouse and distribution space. Trans-Trade is working with BNSF to streamline cargo handling services, and offer rapid transloading and processing alternatives for containers arriving from the West Coast, Trans-Trade officials said in a prepared statement.

“We have a lot of interest from container ship lines, importers, exporters and domestic intermodal clients because our building is the only inland port capable of handling heavyweight containers without expensive permits and equipment,” said Trans-Trade Vice President of Sales Dan Beers.
