This state-of-the-art intermodal facility includes the implementation of semi-automated technologies, railroad yard tracks, electric wide-span rail-mounted gantry cranes, container stacking areas, and administrative buildings. Buildings on the facility will be architecturally designed to match the historic characteristics of existing buildings in the area.
Palmetto Railways plans to develop the intermodal facility with new innovative technology that is environmentally responsible. Electric cranes will be utilized in an effort to reduce impacts on the area such as noise and air emissions. In addition, semi-automated technology will be implemented to reduce truck congestion on the surrounding roadways and reduce diesel emissions.
