OmniTRAX, Inc., a privately held transportation service company, and A&R Logistics, a national provider of integrated dry bulk logistics solutions for the chemical and plastic industries, are opening a new transload facility in Atlanta. The Atlanta Waterfront Terminal, located adjacent to the Fulton County Railway tracks southwest of downtown, will initially enable the contents of 10 rail hopper cars to be simultaneously offloaded to trailers.
The terminal features secure fencing, high intensity lighting and a fully graded compound that also includes storage space for 20 train cars. A&R will use the depot to transfer plastic pellets shipped by rail from resin producers across the country onto specialized pneumatic trailers, and then transport the product to extruders throughout Georgia and neighboring states.
“The new Atlanta Waterfront Terminal is a great location for A&R, complete with access to the interstate system and great opportunities for growth. We look forward to working with the A&R team to ensure the facility safely reaches its full potential,” said Kevin Shuba, CEO of OmniTRAX.
“The key to the Atlanta Waterfront Terminal is flexibility. The location allows our trucks to get anywhere in the metro Atlanta area quickly and efficiently, plus the site is expandable to fit our growing needs,” said Dan Jaworski, Chief Commercial Officer of A&R Logistics.
