14 Troy Hills Road, Whippany, NJ 07981
The Morristown & Erie Railway is proud to announce the construction of a brand-new train-to-truck bulk transloading facility on Troy Hills Road in Whippany, NJ. The new Troy Hills Bulk Transload Facility, located just off Route 10, will facilitate the seamless transportation of goods and materials in the Hanover area.
With the construction of this transload facility, businesses no longer need to be located along the railroad to be railroad customers. The Troy Hills location will be one of the closest public transload facility facilities to the ports of Newark and New York. With a capacity of 13 railcars, the facility will also offer a laydown area for products to be stored on-site. Indoor warehousing space is also available. A truck scale is conveniently located just two miles west at the railroad’s Jefferson Road Transload Facility. Customers may also use the new Troy Hills facility to distribute bulk products amongst their own local storefronts and sales centers, allowing them to take advantage of the benefits of bulk rail shipping without having their own rail-served location.
The Troy Hills Bulk Transload Facility can be used to handle virtually all commodities shipped by rail or truck, including plastics, grain, or lumber. The Morristown & Erie Railway can even arrange to unload railcars for customers at this location. A nearby bridge allows for bottom-dump unloading of railcars into a dump truck, which is useful for commodities such as coal, gravel, road salt, or cement.
The new Troy Hills Bulk Transload Facility is expected to open in 2016. For more information, please call the Morristown & Erie Railway at 973-267-4300.
