Jaguar Transport Holdings (JTH) has entered into an agreement with Union Pacific wholly owned subsidiary Loup Logistics to operate the Dallas Transload Solution (DTL) in Dallas, Tex. JTH expected to begin operations on Sept. 5.

DTL, a seven-acre transload facility just southeast of downtown Dallas and adjacent to I-45, connects with UP and is equipped with three transload tracks, trucks scales, covered storage and other outdoor laydown space. The facility, which “provides rail service for customers who want the efficiencies of using rail but lack a physical site located on a railroad,” currently serves customers who transload steel and lumber.

DTL is JTH’s sixth rail park operation. Other JTH facilities include the West Memphis Transload in West Memphis, Ark., and the Marion Industrial Rail Park in Marion, Ohio. The company, headquartered in Joplin, Mo., is a transportation and logistics company that operates eight short line railroads and multiple other rail-served sites across the U.S. JTH is partnered with OPSEU Pension Plan Trust Fund (OPTrust), which invests and manages one of Canada’s largest pension funds and “has significant experience investing in the surface transportation and logistics space.”
