G&W’s rail link begins operations at Port of Caddo-Bossier

Choice Terminal™ opens a facility

Genesee & Wyoming Inc. has announced that its Rail Link subsidiary has contracted with the Port of Caddo-Bossier in Shreveport, Louisiana, to provide a rail service at the Port. The rail service will be hauling inbound and outbound materials between the Port and customers.

“The Port shifted its already cross-trained operations employees from the Port’s day-to-day rail operations to the maritime and ground transportation multimodal facilities. At the same time, we are providing better service at a competitive price for all our customers. Given Rail Link’s domestic and international transportation and logistics breadth, I expect immense growth in our rail traffic and access to markets we have been unable to reach” said Port of Caddo-Bossier Executive Director Eric England.

Located on the Red River Waterway, the Port is home to an inland multi-modal transportation and distribution centre that links customers throughout Arkansas, Louisiana and Texas to domestic and international markets via the Mississippi River and Gulf Intracoastal Waterway.
