Allegheny Valley Railroad Co. (AVR) last week received the first rail shipments at its new Glenwood Transload Terminal in Pittsburgh.
The facility features a 40-ton capacity Mi-Jack™ TraveLift® traveling gantry crane that can load and unload multiple rail-car spots directly to truck or ground storage. It can service a variety of rail-car types, AVR officials said in a press release.
The terminal handles steel products and offers rail-to-truck transloading of nonferrous metals, forest products, dimensional loads, ABC containers and other building and construction materials and bulk commodities.
Moreover, the new facility provides competitive rail pricing for medium and long hauls, the flexibility of local trucking to the surrounding region and daily service from AVR's adjacent Glenwood freight yard, AVR officials said.
"We are excited to offer this new service to Pittsburgh and look forward to providing continued support for the steel industry and other manufacturing businesses for which the Pittsburgh region is so well known," said AVR President Mark Rosner.
A subsidiary of Carload Express Inc., AVR provides daily rail service and direct connections via Buffalo & Pittsburgh Railroad, CSX, Norfolk Southern Railway and the Wheeling & Lake Erie Railway Co.
