Savage will own and operate the railport, being built on property leased from KCS at its Mossville Rail Yard.

This facility is expected to be operational by January and will provide a critical link in the supply chains of Lake Charles area refineries, chemical plants and other businesses.

Kirk Aubry, Savage President and CEO, said:

“Savage has a longstanding relationship with KCS and we’re excited to open this new Louisiana railport and provide a sizable transload and storage facility at their Mossville yard in the coming months.

“We’ve provided rail and loading services for customers in the Lake Charles area for many years, and look forward to making a difference for even more businesses in southwest Louisiana.”

This railport is part of the growing Savage transload network of approximately 50 multicommodity, rail-connected terminals across North America, and the first developed in partnership with KCS.

When completed it will expand the number of active transloading spots from 40 to 70. It will also have 600 spots for railcar storage, enabling plants, refineries and other businesses in the area to store railcars closer to their facilities.

The railport further provides access to moving products into Mexico on KCS rail lines.
