Quincy, Wash.-based Rail Logistics-Cold Train and Interstate Distributor Co. have announced a partnership in which Cold Train will utilize a dedicated fleet of trucks from Interstate Distributor Co. for short-haul drayage service to and from the Port of Quincy, Wash., Intermodal Terminal.

Rail Logistics in 2010 launched the "Cold Train" Pacific Northwest-Chicagoland Express Refrigerated Intermodal Service in partnership with BNSF and the Port of Quincy. The services has grown rapidly in popularity with shippers in Washington state and the Midwest, and several thousand containers of fresh produce, frozen products, and/or other cargo have been shipped on Cold Train, the company says.

Says Rail Logistics-Cold Train President Steve Lawson, "This new partnership with Interstate Distributor Co. will provide Cold Train with scalable drayage capacity in Washington State to meet increasing shipment demands as the service continues to grow."
