Union Pacific has opened the Union Pacific Twin Cities Intermodal Terminal, and the railroad is launching intermodal service to Minneapolis in January 2021.
The new service will feature domestic intermodal service between the Twin Cities and Los Angeles, expanding its customers’ reach to key Upper Midwest markets.
“We are excited to introduce an intermodal terminal strategically located in the heart of the Minneapolis – St. Paul metropolitan area that offers efficient access to Union Pacific’s intermodal network,” Kenny Rocker, executive vice president – marketing and sales for Union Pacific, said in a news release. “This new marketplace alternative will give regional shippers and receivers fast, direct and reliable intermodal service to key markets.”
Union Pacific said it will evaluate additional service expansions into the Twin Cities Intermodal Terminal throughout 2021.
