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 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.
World Distribution Services has established a unique 35-acre bulk transloading facility in Columbus, OH that combines transloading services for agricultural commodities such as DDGS and soybeans with a full range of conventional rail and rail intermodal services. Our Container Transload Facility (CTF) can transload product arriving via both bulk hopper truck and rail hopper car to intermodal containers and then place the fully loaded container directly onto intermodal rail cars for service to the USEC, USWC and to the Canadian gateway of Prince Rupert. Containers can be sourced from the largest container depot in the central Ohio area that is located adjacent to the CTF. This is a truly unique operation that combines an excellent source of containers with a full range of transloading services that is rail served.
