Northern Rail & Transload is the largest transload site in rural Wisconsin.
It is a multi-modal rail transload which is able to receive many inbound commodities. One of the most important of these essential commodities is Liquid Propane. The facility has an initial capacity of 15 million gallons per year, replacing approximately 35% of the Western Wisconsin volume. Although propane has historically been trucked from ports on the pipeline, our solution lowers the cost of transport due to the cost-effectiveness of rail and the proximity of the facility to users. Northern Rail & Transload’s goal is to have a significant positive impact on the supply and price of Liquid Propane in Western Wisconsin and surrounding areas.
In addition, the facility offers transloading sites for bulk salt, forest products, small business commodities, sand and agricultural products.
