Terminal Operations & Rail Transload

Rail Terminal Operations

Rail transportation is usually the most efficient and safest mode for moving large quantities of bulk commodities long distances. However, not all shippers and receivers have direct rail service. The solution — truck to rail transloading. This gives shippers and receivers access to rail transportation for long haul movements combined with local truck delivery.

RSI operates 18 rail transload terminals that handle a variety of commodities including dry, liquid, hazardous, and food grade. While the transload services provided by RSI can be tailored to your needs, here is a summary of our standard transload services.
