Rail Access

Because rail can move a high volume of product in a single load, rail transportation can offer significant savings over shipment by truck to many destinations.

Managing the Coordination of Your Shipment

At Interstate Cold Storage, our rail spurs can handle both standard 50-ft rail cars and newer “Super Cars” with loads up to 165,000 lbs. (4 truckloads) of product. Our customer service representatives work closely with Western, Genesee, Wyoming CFE, Maumee, CSX Corporation and local freight yards, so we can better manage the coordination of product loading/unloading and scheduling of your rail shipments. Most modern refrigerated cars are monitored via satellite for temperature accuracy, fuel-level tracking, and general maintenance, so you can rest assured that your product is well taken care of.

Not only is shipping by rail often a great decision from an economic perspective, but it also contributes to lessening the burden on our already crowded US interstate system. See our locations page for information about specific facilities.


Available at all five locations.
At Interstate Cold Storage, Inc., we’ve developed new food tempering and quick-freezing solutions. Using a proprietary process, we can reduce food tempering and freezing times by as much as 350%.
