Venus — American PetroLog has announced that it has completed construction of a full-service BNSF terminal with capabilities to transload and store bulk liquid, dry bulk and carload commodities.
The company completed an asset purchase of B&E Grain, Inc in January and has developed the 8-acre rail site to service their customer base in the Dallas-Ft Worth market. American PetroLog President Jeff Colonna, stated, “We made a strategic decision to open a transload and storage terminal in Venus because we recognize that North Texas is a rapidly growing market for both consumption and manufacturing. In many cases, railroads provide the most economical and reliable means of freight transportation, so our services are needed to support this growth.”
“We’ve been fortunate to have already signed several loading slot and tank storage placement contracts and we are in the process of finalizing positions for a couple more customers,” he added.
Robert Kellner, Chief Relationship Officer, echoed the sentiment and stated, “Partnering with the professionals at BNSF has been a great experience and we are excited as we jointly identify opportunities to develop BNSF terminals in other markets.”
American PetroLog is an employee equity company that is operated by a diverse team of logistics professionals focused on providing safe transportation and world class customer service while reducing the overall logistics spend of their customers.
