Cold Train is expanding its express refrigerated intermodal service from Portland, Ore., to complement its existing expedited service out of Quincy, Wash.
Cold Train’s expanded eastbound service out of Portland will deliver to the same destinations and locations as it does from Quincy, Wash., including areas in Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia and Wisconsin.
Rail Logistics launched the Cold Train Express Intermodal Service in partnership with BNSF Railway and the Port of Quincy in Washington State in 2010.
“We have had tremendous success moving fresh produce and frozen food products from Washington State and Oregon to the Midwest and East Coast following the start of our Cold Train Service in 2010,” said Steve Lawson, president and CEO of Rail Logistics Cold Train, in a written statement. “We are excited about our continued expansion into Portland and being able to provide increased capacity for fresh and frozen products moving between the Pacific Northwest, Chicago and East Coast.”
