A short line blooms in Baltimore

In 2014, Tradepoint Atlantic began a mission to combine access to Class Is, deepwater berths, interstate highways, warehouses and distribution centers to establish the nation’s largest intermodal redevelopment complex near the Port of Baltimore.

The logistics center is designed to encompass an area that at one time housed plants operated by the Pennsylvania Steel and Bethlehem Steel companies dating back to 1889, but had gone dormant in 2012.

Tradepoint Atlantic leaders are counting on the rail aspect of their plan to play a major role in the redevelopment project. In November 2016, the company formed and branded Tradepoint Rail, a short line that manages and operates more than 100 miles of track at the logistics center. The railroad interchanges with CSX and Norfolk Southern Railway.

To learn more about Tradepoint Rail and Tradepoint Atlantic’s redevelopment effort, read this article I posted to our website earlier this month. Feel free to share thoughts about the project or the new short line in the comment section.
