Allegheny Valley Railroad Company (AVR), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Carload Express, Inc., received its first rail shipments at its new Glenwood Transload Terminal in Pittsburgh, PA last week. This facility features a 40-Ton capacity Mi-Jack™ TraveLift® traveling gantry crane that can load and unload multiple railcar spots directly to truck or to ground storage. It can service a variety of railcar types such as gondolas, regular and bulkhead flatcars, and centerbeams. The facility handles steel products such as plate, bar, rod, structural, pipe and coils; and offers railcar-to-truck transloading of non-ferrous metals, forest products, dimensional loads, ABC Containers, and other building and construction materials and bulk commodities.
This new facility provides the benefits of rail’s competitive pricing for medium and long hauls, combined with the flexibility of local trucking to the surrounding region (which can be arranged by AVR), and AVR’s customer-focused, daily service from our adjacent Glenwood freight yard.
