UPGRADED TRANSLOAD WEBSITE

Genesee & Wyoming (G&W) has
enhanced its website with an interactive transload locator for current and
potential customers to identify transload, reload and warehouse facilities
within 150 miles of G&W's 113 short
line and regional railroads in North
America. G&W's Senior Vice President
Mike Webb calls the tool "invaluable for
businesses looking to tap into freight rail
economics, increase efficiency and better
manage supply chains."
Users can filter results by city, state,
ZIP code or railroad name. The ZIP code
search displays transload sites within
a 25-, 50-, 100- or 150-mile radius.
Information in each entry includes the
transload site address, railroad sales
contact information, the number of
railcar spots, Class I railroad interchanges
and a detailed photo with Google Maps
integration that allows users to drill down
on the location. The tool can be accessed
at www.gwrr.com/transload.

AD INDEX

PENNSYLVANIA SHORT LINE

INITIATIVES PAY OFF

Reading and Northern Railroad achieved
record carload volumes and revenue for
2015. The Pennsylvania short line handled
28,940 carloads, which surpassed the
previous record achieved in 2014 by more
than 4,500 carloads.
The 19 percent growth in carloads
helped the railroad reach record revenues, which exceeded past levels by more
than 30 percent as freight revenues were
supplemented by revenue from new transloading and warehouse businesses. Reading and Northern handles a diverse mix

of commodities, including wood pulp,
paper, metals, food products, plastics,
forest products, chemicals and minerals.
"Our record-breaking volumes for
2015 prove that our decision to offer our
customers guaranteed service windows
does grow the business. And in 2016
we are taking this commitment one
step further by improving our already
excellent service by hiring more crews
and running more trains faster," said
Andy Muller Jr., CEO and owner of the
Reading and Northern. —
