Railex switches to summer shipping schedule

In the Pacific Northwest, supplies of produce harvested in autumn 2013 are beginning to dwindle. As supplies decrease and volume shifts to other growing regions, Railex has adjusted to its summer shipping schedule.
Effective the week that began May 4, 2014, Railex will ship one weekly train out of the Pacific Northwest region (Wallula WA) to Rotterdam NY. This train departs on Wednesday and arrives the next Tuesday.
Railex will resume the second weekly train from the Pacific Northwest region in autumn 2014 once new crops have been harvested.
The company assures seamless logistics success from point of origin to final destination. This includes five-day coast-to-coast refrigerated freight shipping plus access to full 3PL (third party logistics) support.
Railex manages all aspects of perishables logistics: warehousing, inventory control, forward distribution, and repacking. Other services include 250,000-square-foot multi-temperature zone refrigerated distribution facilities, real-time inventory control, up to five days free storage, and short-haul trucking.
Its temperature-controlled TL and LTL system has a 50,000-plus weekly pallet capacity, which will increase to 75,000 once the new Jacksonville FL facility opens in summer 2014.
