What makes Savage different from other transloaders?
- Our team members, processes, and procedures are differentiators within our Savage Transload network. Because of these differentiators, we are a safe and effective multi-commodity transloading operator. We are capable of handling critical materials from food-grade products all the way to hazardous materials at most of our transloading operations. Also, because of our large transload network, we can often help serve our customers in multiple markets. This provides value to customers because they deal with one operator to ensure a more consistent handling of their materials in their supply chains.
What are you seeing in the market? When do you see markets coming back?
- Today, markets still are very soft. There has been, as of late, some small upticks in grain, food, lumber, and wood products, but these are still down from a year ago. I don’t have a magic ball, but I do believe we will continue to see slow growth at least through the remainder of 2020.
Are there any new projects or developments that Savage is working on now?
- We are very excited about the Carolina Marine Terminal (CMT) that we just acquired back in June. CMT has earned a reputation for delivering best-in-class stevedoring, storage, and distribution services. The 65-acre facility currently handles critical materials including aggregate rock, fertilizers, salt, crude iron, and chrome. In the years ahead, we will continue to focus on providing innovative and cost-effective solutions to grow CMT’s Customer base.
What is Savage currently doing in transloading?
- Savage’s mission is to “Power our lives, feed the world, and sustain the planet.” Our Transloading team is constantly providing supply chain solutions to serve our mission as a company and move our customers' critical materials. Our transloading network has over 50 facilities that provide safe and efficient ways for our customers to move materials across North America. We are continuing to grow our network with the addition of three new terminals in Brownsville TX, Wilmington NC, and Reno NV.
