OmniTRAX Inc., an affiliate of The Broe Group, is launching its Rail-Ready Sites program at Savannah Gateway Industrial Hub in coordination with the Effingham County Industrial Development Authority (ECIDA). The Rail-Ready Sites program connects customers looking to maximize supply chain performance with rail-served properties.
OmniTRAX is working with the ECIDA and brokerage firm Colliers International to market and develop more than a dozen sites in Savannah Gateway, ranging from 60 to more than 200 acres. Located near the Port of Savannah and with direct access to CSX and Norfolk Southern (NS) railroads, these sites “are ideal locations for plastics, aerospace, automotive and advanced industrial manufacturing, as well as logistics and distribution centers.” Click here to review the sites and learn more about OmniTRAX’s Rail-Ready Sites program.
Savannah Gateway Industrial Hub is a 2,700-acre master-planned, Georgia Ready for Accelerated Development-certified development. OmniTRAX is in the process of constructing an industrial switcher to connect the sites in the industrial park and logistics hub to on-property Class I railroads that serve the East Coast.
“With great domestic and international logistics capabilities, the Savannah market is increasingly appealing to a wide variety of companies,” said Justin Strickland, Director, Economic Development at OmniTRAX. “Our Rail-Ready Sites program makes site selection at Savannah Gateway easier by providing detailed information on available properties, which will lead to a successful project location.”
“We have a robust workforce in the Savannah region, with a high concentration of military veterans and the cost of living here is very competitive,” said Brandt Herndon, CEO of Effingham County Industrial Development Authority. “Add the proximity to the Port of Savannah, direct access to the two Class I railroads, first-class highways and the positive attitude of our local and state governments, and Savannah Gateway is the ideal location to site just about any manufacturing facility or logistics hub.”
“OmniTRAX, Broe and our partners bring wide-ranging expertise in railroading, real estate, engineering and government relations to help customers with every aspect of their project,” said Reagan Shanley, Executive Vice President, Broe Real Estate Group. “With the first major facility opening in Savannah Gateway this fall, we expect several leading companies to join them and enjoy the benefits of the region.”
