Businesses do not need to be located adjacent to railroad tracks to be railroad customers. Public transload facilities allow customers to conveniently transfer products and materials between railcars and trucks without having their own rail-served location. The Morristown & Erie Railway has several transload facilities in Morris County that offer areas for products to be stored on-site, as well as truck scales and other conveniences. Customers may even use these transload facilities to distribute bulk products among their own local storefronts and sales centers and take advantage of the benefits of bulk rail shipping without having to invest in any distribution facility of their own.
The M&E offers several conveniently located transload facilities along our lines so that customers can unload their products where they need them, when they need them. The M&E's transload facilities can be used to handle virtually all commodities shipped by rail or truck. The M&E can even arrange to unload railcars for customers at these locations.
