GT Logistics has received its first unit train at the new TX GT OmniPort facility in Port Arthur, US.
The site is a multimodal terminal for crude oil and other petrochemicals, which will enter the facility via rail, ship, barge and truck.
TX GT OmniPort cost $95 million (€72 million) to build and is situated on 1,100 acres, next to refineries that have more than 1 million barrels a day of capacity.
The terminal can store in excess of 4 million barrels of petroleum products and also connects with pipelines that distribute the product to the region.
The rail terminal will receive train traffic and features 200 acres of rail car storage which can store, switch and transload more than 1,000 rail cars.
The park is expected to create 1,000 jobs and $100 million in new capital investment over the next decade.
