Benchmark River and Rail

Benchmark River and Rail

Our various River, Rail and Truck terminals possess abilities to ship and receive bulk products by the major modes of transit including barges from the Ohio River, rail cars primarily by CSX, and trucks. The terminals can handle a variety of bulk cargos including a wide array of liquid as well as dry materials. Materials can be conveyed via pumps, plant air, or conveyors. In the case of liquids, materials can also be heated with steam or hot oil. Specialty services including blending dilution are routinely performed as well.

Benchmark’s River Road facility is served by the CSXT railroad daily, Monday through Friday. As an “open gate” facility, CSXT has open access to Benchmark’s rail siding allowing for seamless delivery directly from the customer to Benchmark’s rail yard. The Trackmobile unit pictured here allows Benchmark to shuffle cars within the rail yard without further assistance from the railroad.
