KCS opens new transload terminal in Dallas, Texas

KCS 2020

Kansas City Southern (KCS) has announced that it has opened a multi-commodity transload terminal at its former Zacha intermodal terminal in Dallas, Texas. KCSR has named Watco Transloading as its operator for the facility.

The new facility offers 9,523 ft of track space within the terminal and 80 ac of outside storage for customers, with room for expansion as business grows. The former Zacha intermodal terminal closed when KCS opened a new intermodal facility in Wylie, Texas. Since that time, Zacha has provided limited transload operations under an interim operator.

“KCS is focused on growth through key business relationships and a strategically-positioned network,” said KCS’s Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Brian Hancock. “Providing customers with supply chain solutions through our TLC network and partnerships with companies like Watco are important components of that growth.”

“We are pleased to grow our partnership with KCS,” said Watco Vice President Business Development Rob Thrall. “The Watco operations team in Dallas is ready to provide safe, efficient operations and outstanding customer service. This is the 55th terminal opening within the Watco Terminal and Port Services network.”
