What does the next generation transloading facility or logistics center look like? (Brent Peterson)

We see the next generation of transloading facilities to be away from urban areas where land is more accessible and fewer restrictions to transload dangerous goods. Security will be a big element as well. Controlled gates, cameras, lights, and fencing will be vital for future transloading sites. This will give customers more confidence in the site and comply with ever-increasing government regulations. We are making a concerted effort to incorporate renewable energy and energy efficiency into our operations and assets. Many customers have carbon goals and providing a sustainable transload terminal in the supply chain helps customers achieve their goals. We are also keeping a very close eye on EV developments and planning the sites to accommodate electric and automated trucking. Transportation routes that can safely support automated vehicles by keeping the public out of harm’s way will be important for the next generation of logistics centers.
