Ohio Intermodal Service Gets Funding Boost

An intermodal service lane that will use a terminal in Jeffersonville, Ohio, has received seed money from Canadian Pacific and Genesee & Wyoming.

The service links Southwest Ohio and Vancouver, British Columbia, six days a week and began in July.

The 90-acre terminal receives containers from Columbus, Cincinnati, and Dayton. Owned and operated by corn and soybean producer Bluegrass Farms of Ohio, it located near Interstate 71.

The containers are routed to Chicago by the Chicago, Fort Wayne & Eastern (Chicago-Lima) and the Indiana & Ohio (Lima-Jeffersonville).

“The new service is an ideal end-to-end supply-chain offering for auto parts shippers, as it bypasses Chicago interchanges, offers flexible destinations, and creates compelling round-trip economics, including opportunities for the backhaul of agricultural products,” said CP spokesman Andy Cummings.
