Rail connections that provide transport alternatives will ultimately be the first choice for customers seeking reliable options as well as opportunity. Customers value flexibility and more importantly, trust. The more integrated, the better.
Take the Union Pacific Railroad’s Tacoma South Intermodal Terminal, for example. It covers more than 40 acres of land, is equipped to handle 150,000 annual lifts, and has a location next to western Washington’s warehousing, transloading and distribution centers, and local highways.
The TacSim service runs between the Pacific Northwest and the major markets of Chicago, the Midwest and the eastern United States, creating a major competitive advantage in the region. The location and commodities provided create more opportunities for innovative efficiencies and options.
