Canadian Pacific to offer new intermodal facility in Ohio

Canadian Pacific Railway Limited (CP) announced a new partnership with Genesee & Wyoming Inc. (G&W) and Bluegrass Farms of Ohio that will open up the Ohio Valley to CP customers and further extend CP’s reach into key North American markets.
CP has an exclusive agreement with Bluegrass Farms of Ohio to use its 90-acre intermodal facility in Jeffersonville, Ohio. The site offers CP and G&W a ready-made intermodal facility on the Indiana & Ohio rail line that is able to accommodate intermodal and bulk shipments, along with the ability to provide transloading services of bulk agricultural products into containers. The secure site also features extensive container and trailer storage and the ability to grow with current and future customers. The farm consortium will continue to own the facility, and will operate it on behalf of CP. CP has also come to an agreement with G&W, which services the site through its Indiana & Ohio line.
“This service allows our international intermodal customers to come through the Port of Vancouver and access markets deep in the Ohio Valley. The unique site also creates better round trip economics for our customers by enabling the empty containers to be re-loaded with agriculture products and shipped back overseas,” said Keith Creel, CP President and Chief Executive Officer.
“This intermodal terminal not only offers a new rail option to and from the Ohio Valley, but was purpose built to provide backhaul opportunities that will enable customers to reduce overall transportation costs and enhance their competitive advantage,” said Jack Hellmann, G&W Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer.
