The Morristown & Erie Railway currently serves three major lumber distributors and a large roofing, packaging, and adhesives manufacturer. These facilities receive lumber, wallboard, pulp, and paper by rail from mills and other shippers throughout North America. Lumber and building material supply chains built around rail shipments can lower costs and improve efficiency in an industry that is heavily based on demand.
Lumber distributors receiving by rail are instantly connected to thousands of potential shippers and suppliers across the continent. For receivers lacking a dedicated rail-served location, the Morristown & Erie’s convenient transload facilities offer attractive alternatives in the New York metropolitan area. Several of these facilities are used by the Morristown & Erie’s current customers to offload railcars to trucks for final delivery to warehouses, distribution centers, or directly to customers.
The Morristown & Erie’s transload options include outdoor laydown and storage, with 24/7 access for product pickup and distribution. Nearby public warehouses provide ample indoor lumber storage, and the Morristown & Erie can even arrange trucking for final delivery to your location.
