OmniTRAX expands rail-ready program to Stockton Terminal and Eastern


OmniTRAX Inc. is expanding its Rail-Ready Sites program to the Stockton Terminal and Eastern Railroad (STE) in Northern California.

The company is working with the San Joaquin Partnership to promote developable, rail-ready property adjacent to the STE. The initial three sites total 83 acres and include a 65-acre parcel, OmniTRAX officials said in a press release.

The locations would suit rail-served agriculture, manufacturing, asphalt, cement, chemicals, food processing, lumber, steel and distribution facilities, they said.

"San Joaquin County and the greater Stockton region are going through an industrial and agricultural renaissance that our Rail-Ready Sites program will help to support," said Ean Johnson, OmniTRAX vice president of industrial development. 

STE is an affiliate of OmniTRAX, which launched its Rail-Ready Sites program last year at the Winchester & Western Railroad in West Virginia and New Jersey.
