Union Pacific recently announced plans to open a new intermodal terminal in the heart of Southern California’s import distribution/warehouse region. Located near the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, the new terminal will open in second quarter 2021, providing customers with expanded access to Chicago and other key markets including the Inland Empire.
“We are excited to expand our intermodal presence and do it where we can reduce truck traffic on California’s highways, cut drayage costs and compete effectively for domestic intermodal freight,” said Kenny Rocker, Union Pacific executive vice president marketing and sales.
Union Pacific will start by establishing a pop-up terminal at its West Colton rail yard. Domestic intermodal service will launch between Southern California and Chicago, with expected future service to Dallas and southeast markets.
Union Pacific has the largest North American intermodal network and the most direct coast-to-coast services.
