The Perry (Indiana) County Port Authority and TNW Logistics Services have reached an agreement to expand the Tell City River Port on the Ohio River.
The Hoosier Southern connects with Norfolk Southern at Lincoln City, Indiana.
In a news release, The Dallas-based TNW said this is its first venture into Indiana.
“This is a natural fit for the expertise TNW has gained while developing our rail and multimodal logistics centers in Texas,” said TNW Corp. Chief Executive Officer Paul Treangen in a statement. “We are eager to increase business volume, create economic development opportunities and foster strong relationships with the shippers and local communities.”
The port handles barge traffic from the headwaters of the Ohio River, as well as the Great Lakes and the Gulf of Mexico.
It has 38 acres of land with 3,300 square feet of Ohio River frontage covering more than 3,500 feet of undeveloped river frontage. Two large warehouses have more than 46,000 square feet for storage of bulk materials and 75,000 square feet of concrete and asphalt pads also are available.
