MHF Logistical Solutions moves 5,000th rail car carrying contaminated soil


Yesterday, MHF Logistical Solutions Inc. announced it shipped the 5,000th rail car of contaminated soil from a St. Louis remediation site in six years.

Since 1998, MHF has shipped more than 750,000 cubic yards of contaminated soil to an Idaho disposal facility via rail in high-capacity gondolas. The company expects to move about 100,000 cubic yards this year.

"The St. Louis project is another example of how rail can play a vital role in moving radiological materials from clean-up sites," said John Evanko, MHS president, chief executive officer and founder, in a prepared statement. "Rail, combined with new packaging and lining systems we've developed, offers tremendous advantages to the nuclear industry, including enhanced safety and lower costs."

MHF designs engineered packaging and transportation solutions, and provides transportation services for bulk solid and liquid, and packaged materials via rail, truck and waterway. The company owns a fleet of more than 1,350 rail cars and trailers, and more than 2,500 containers.
