OmniTRAX, Inc., a comprehensive logistics solutions provider and the transportation affiliate of The Broe Group, is launching Rail Ready Sites on the Alabama and Tennessee River Railway, LLC (ATN) with support from local economic development partners.
“As manufacturing and logistics companies continue to explore Alabama’s geographic advantages and business friendly climate, Rail Ready Sites along the ATN provide tremendous opportunities for successful market entry. We are proud to partner with state and local economic development organizations to help build and bolster Alabama communities,” said OmniTRAX Director of Industrial Development Justin Strickland.”
Locations across five counties of The Alabama and Tennessee River Railway earn Rail-Ready Site status for their strong infrastructure, workforce and proximity to major markets
The Rail-Ready Sites program connects companies looking to maximize supply chain performance with rail-served properties conducive to industrial development.
“Omnitrax has been a fantastic partner to work with in our economic development efforts,” said Marshall County EDC President and CEO Matt Arnold. “Economic development is all about building partnerships and our railroad is an important part of that. The Rail-Ready Sites program has helped identify sites that will be essential in creating new jobs in Marshall County.”
OmniTRAX is marketing sites that span the ATN’s 120 miles from Birmingham to Guntersville, with transload and multimodal options and Class I connections to CSXT and Norfolk Southern.
“Rail served industrial sites are hard to find, valuable economic assets, so we are pleased that OmniTRAX has partnered with The Gadsden-Etowah IDA to identify multiple Rail Ready sites poised to serve our community,” said Gadsden-Etowah IDA Executive Director David Hooks.
