Freight Flexibility to Help You Control Costs

unloading steel coils delivered by barge from Burns Harbor steel mills

 

Freight and fuel charges are a constant challenge to steel users. Many get locked into supply contracts where these factors put them at a disadvantage. We may hold the key to help you unlock that problem.

 

Road, Rail and Barge

We offer the ultimate in flexibility, accepting steel coils from around the world into our climate-controlled storage without ever touching a truck. Barge shipments from the Port of New Orleans or the mills of Gary/Burns Harbor, Pittsburgh, Alabama and Mississippi are unloaded by a 50-ton crane right into our building. Rail shipments, arriving via our dedicated spur on the CN system, are unloaded the same way.

 

But if truck is the mode of choice, it's good to know that we are near the crossroads of four major interstates. Our strategic location near St. Louis is a short haul from the mills of Granite City and within an 8-hour drive of over 50% of the country's steel making capacity.
