Genesee & Wyoming Inc. (G&W)(NYSE:GWR) announced today that its Rail Link, Inc., subsidiary has contracted with the Port of Caddo-Bossier in Shreveport, La., to provide rail service at the Port, hauling inbound and outbound materials between the Port and its customers.
“This is a win-win situation for our customers, Rail Link and the Port,” said Port of Caddo-Bossier Executive Director Eric England. “The Port shifted its already cross-trained operations employees from the Port’s day-to-day rail operations to the maritime and ground transportation multimodal facilities. At the same time, we are providing better service at a competitive price for all our customers. Given Rail Link’s domestic and international transportation and logistics breadth, I expect immense growth in our rail traffic and access to markets we have been unable to reach.”
Located on the Red River Waterway, the Port is home to an inland multi-modal transportation and distribution center that links customers throughout Arkansas, Louisiana and Texas to domestic and international markets via the Mississippi River and Gulf Intracoastal Waterway.
“The Port of Caddo-Bossier currently has 11 rail-served customers shipping a wide variety of commodities including metals, paper and chemicals,” said Rail Link President Andrew Chunko. “The Port has done a great job building that rail business and supporting its customers, and we likewise look forward to building long-term relationships based on safety, service and mutual growth.”
G&W subsidiaries also provide rail service at the Gulf Coast ports of Baton Rouge, Galveston and Corpus Christi, among more than 40 worldwide including Felixstowe, London Gateway, Rotterdam, Savannah and Virginia International Gateway.
