Rail-served locations feature quick access to entire Midwest and a well-trained workforce
DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Broe Group’s transportation affiliate, OmniTRAX Inc., a comprehensive logistics solutions provider, is working with the City of Sand Springs, Okla. to bring its Rail-Ready Sites program to the Sand Springs Railway (SS). The OmniTRAX Rail-Ready Sites program connects companies looking to recognize the benefits of rail with rail-served properties.
OmniTRAX and Sand Springs are initially marketing two rail-served sites on the SS totaling about 25 acres. The SS, with direct connections with Union Pacific and BNSF, operates a 32-mile route between Sand Springs and Tulsa, and provides regional rail services to numerous customers with direct rail service, rail-to-truck and truck-to-rail transloading, bulk transfer-distribution and inventory management solutions.
“With great infrastructure connecting most of the Midwest in a few days, companies locating in Sand Springs can get their products to market more effectively than most areas of the country. We look forward to continuing our collaboration with the City of Sand Springs to help bring jobs and economic growth to the region,” said Ean Johnson, Vice President of Industrial Development at OmniTRAX.
Sand Springs and the Tulsa County region are top-rated locations for companies in the steel, advanced manufacturing and energy related industries. To review the available sites and learn more about how OmniTRAX helps companies locate on rail-served properties, visit this link.
“Sand Springs is a well-connected transportation hub with a very stable workforce and local government, plus rising demographics. We’ve had an excellent relationship with OmniTRAX since they acquired the Sand Springs Railway more than six years ago and their Rail-Ready Sites program will certainly help attract a new corporate partner to Sand Springs that relies on rail service,” said Mayor Jim Spoon of the City of Sand Springs.
