MOBILE, Alabama – Alabama officials today announced that CN, a Canadian transportation company, is collaborating with Alabama Export Railroad and Ray-Mont Logistics to launch the first phase of a new, high-tech logistics park in Mobile.
Opening in late 2021, the first phase of the facility will serve to bag plastic pellets for containerized shipping around the world. The terminal will include two bagging lines with a capacity of 300 Forty-Foot Equivalent Units per week.
“This logistics park is another exciting development that will add new capabilities at the state’s gateway for international commerce, the Port of Mobile,” Governor Kay Ivey said. “We welcome this collaboration and look forward to seeing the future growth of this facility.”
Total initial investment in the facility is $16 million, and the project will create up to 50 jobs.
