Talks underway to link Savannah and St Louis through railway tie-up


The Georgia Ports Authority (GPA) and the St Louis Regional Freightway have entered into talks that will result in a formal move to "recognise mutual trade interests".
The Port of Savannah's US$220 million Mason Mega Rail Terminal is expected to increase Norfolk Southern's annual rail lift capacity from 350,000 containers to 500,000 by the end of 2019.
CSX's annual rail lift capacity will grow from 225,000 to 300,000 in 2020 and to 500,000 by the end of 2021, said John Trent, GPA's director of strategic operations and safety, reported American Shipper.
The first phase of the Mason Mega Rail project, which is part of the port's $3 billion investment plan, is scheduled to come online by October and the second phase is set to become operational by the end of 2020, the port said in early April.
"At present, the rail bridges over a canal necessary to link our two current on-terminal rail yards are complete, and additional track is being laid at our Mason Intermodal Container Terminal Facility," Mr Trent said.
