Genesee & Wyoming Inc. (G&W)(GWR) reported recently that its Rail Link, Inc., subsidiary has contracted with the Port of Caddo-Bossier in Shreveport, La., to provide rail service at the Port, hauling inbound and outbound materials between the Port and its consumers.

“This is a win-win situation for our consumers, Rail Link and the Port,” stated Port of Caddo-Bossier Executive Director Eric England. “The Port shifted its already cross-trained operations employees from the Port’s day-to-day rail operations to the maritime and ground transportation multimodal facilities. At the same time, we are providing better service at a competitive price for all our consumers. Given Rail Link’s domestic and international transportation and logistics breadth, I expect immense growth in our rail traffic and access to markets we have been unable to reach.”
