Kansas City Southern relaunches intermodal service between New Orleans and Dallas

North American rail and intermodal provider Kansas City Southern has announced a new weekly intermodal service between the Port of New Orleans and Wylie, Texas, beginning in May 2018.

The previously offered intermodal service in this lane had been discontinued following Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

“KCS is pleased to re-launch this intermodal service between New Orleans and the growing Dallas import market,” said KCS executive vice president and chief marketing officer Brian D. Hancock.  “In our continuing quest to be the most customer-focused transportation provider in North America, KCS is providing options to our customers in both the U.S. and Mexico through port services and transit options for supply chains from Asia, Latin America and Europe.”

The Wylie Intermodal Terminal opened for operations in 2015, serving domestic and international intermodal customers. By the end of 2018, it will have an annual lift capacity of over 342,000 units.
