What Is a Transloading Facility?

Learn about Loup transload facilities.

A Loup Transload Facility is a location strategically placed on the rail network where Loup contracted operators handle the origin and/or destination transload of a wide array of commodities including lumber, metals, bulk materials, and liquids.

Transloading Facilities are where Loup has contracted with a transload operator and invested in the facility and equipment, including rail infrastructure, to serve strategic growth markets.

Loup transloading facilities:

  • Are directly served by Union Pacific Railroad
  • Can handle a wide array of commodities
  • Are run by operators who have extensive experience transferring products from trucks to trains
