World Distribution Services - WDS Columbus, Ohio - Container Transload Facility - CTF

Overview

Our transload facility is superbly located at the former NS Discovery Park intermodal facility in Columbus, OH, with excellent truck access from Interstates 70, 71 and 270. The 35-acre facility provides both bulk transloading capabilities from both bulk hopper trucks and covered rail hopper cars in quantities from single cars to unit trains. CTF operates a private gate for trucks arriving for transload, provides on-site USDA/FGIS inspection services, and operates a private, certified truck scale at the facility – all of which serve to maximize efficiency and minimize truck turn time. Commodities transloaded on-site include agricultural products, steel, heavy equipment, manufactured goods, and raw materials.
