CN, Alabama Export Railroad and Ray-Mont Logistics Partner on Mobile, Alabama Logistics Hub

12/18/2020
CN, a Canadian transportation company, is collaborating with Alabama Export Railroad and Ray-Mont Logistics to launch the first phase of a new, high-tech logistics park in Mobile, Alabama. The $16 million project is expected to create up to 50 jobs.

The facility will provide customers with an unobstructed option to access Asian, Latin American, and European markets without warehousing costs or requiring double handling.

“CN is once again using the strength of its unique tri-coastal network to help customers win in their markets,” said James Cairns, Senior Vice President, Rail Centric Supply Chain at CN. “This logistics park will service customers across our network and the first phase will specifically serve the demand for bagging and stuffing plastic resin containers, which is on the rise in the U.S.”

“Along with our core partners Canadian National and Ray-Mont Logistics, we believe this project represents the first step toward the establishment of a multicommodity logistics hub which will serve producers and global markets for decades to come,” explained Kate C. Luce, president and CEO of Alabama Export Railroad.

Opening in late 2021, the first phase of the facility will serve to bag plastic pellets for containerized shipping around the world.

“Ray-Mont’s new investment positions Alabama’s seaport into the fast growth resin market, while providing shippers a near-port gateway equipped with new ocean carriage services into key export markets” said John Driscoll, director and CEO of the Alabama State Port Authority.
