Long Trains at TTI

TTI: In It for the Long Haul

The numbers say it all: more than 800 containers, more than 12,000 tons of cargo, one train. On dock at its 380-acre terminal at Pier T, Total Terminals International Inc. builds these record-long trains connecting the Port of Long Beach to BNSF’s Logistics Park Chicago Intermodal Facility in America’s heartland. TTI dispatched its first 12,000-foot train in May. Today, these two-mile marvels depart almost weekly, sometimes twice a week.
