International specialty chemical manufacturer gets new rail yard

in Case Study

Client is a chemical manufacturer with a large fleet and multiple third-party tenants. One client facility was experiencing sustained growth, and rail yards were trending towards over-capacity. Client requested assistance with intraplant site selection for a new rail yard, including sizing of the yard for growth scenarios. Client also requested the design of a locomotive service pit by re-purposing nearby underutilized trackage.

The new yard design required careful intra-yard connections to maintain flexibility and velocity of railcar flows.
