G&W opens bulk transfer facility on Georgia Southwestern line
Genesee & Wyoming Inc. announced yesterday it has opened a Choice Terminal™ bulk transfer facility at its Georgia Southwestern Railroad Inc. (GSWR) subsidiary in Bainbridge, Georgia.
The terminal is located on 15 acres with two tracks accommodating 19 total rail cars and offering open-truck access, G&W officials said in a press release.
Operated by G&W railroads, Choice Terminals transfer bulk materials — including agricultural products, aggregates, chemicals and lumber — between rail cars and trucks.
“Customers in southwest Georgia, southeast Alabama and the nearby Florida Panhandle can receive inbound, bulk raw materials via rail at the Bainbridge terminal, hold them on site, and have them delivered to their facilities via truck on a just-in-time basis,” said Jim Irvin, GSWR president. “Likewise, outbound bulk products can be transported to the terminal via truck for loading onto railcars to their final destinations.”
The 270-mile Georgia Southwestern provides shippers with access to the North American rail network via interchanges with CSX and Norfolk Southern Railway.
