Shipping Hub Finalists Announced

KSAL StaffJuly 20, 2015

Seven finalists have been selected for the site of a proposed Kansas transload shipping center

The Kansas Department of Transportation/Kansas Turnpike Authority Transload Facility Site Analysis team selected the finalists from the 111proposals submitted for consideration. Some communities submitted multiple sites.

The finalists include:

Abilene, Concordia, El Dorado (Refinery Road site), Garden City (U.S. 50 Industrial Park), Great Bend, Great Plains Industrial Park just south of Parsons, and Norton.
Transloading is the process of moving goods from one mode of transportation to another, or in this case, from truck to rail and rail to truck.

By blending the benefits of shipping by rail and local/short haul trucking, a transload facility can provide more flexible and cost-effective solutions for customers who may not have local access to freight rail service or those who need expanded warehousing.

The selection committee will hear presentations from the finalists later this month and a final selection is expected in late August.
