Union Pacific subsidiary Loup Logistics Company has purchased Precision Components Inc. (PCI Reload), a 100-plus-acre transload in Phoenix, Ariz.

The deal was finalized Dec. 30, 2021, UP reported on Jan. 25. The facility offers 125,000 square feet of covered storage and three miles of rail capacity, with eight rail spurs and 150-plus car spots. It processes more than 8,000 railcars and 38,000 trucks per year, and has been served by both UP and BNSF.

Loup is excited about the growth potential this acquisition provides to customers seeking access to the Phoenix market,” said Loup Vice President Josh Perkes, who was promoted to the role last February. “Loup is backed by a strong leadership team who will seek to maximize rail throughput at the facility. We are focused on maintaining the excellent reputation PCI Reload has built over the past 60 years, providing creative rail solutions and cost-effective transload operations.”

“PCI Reload helped fuel Arizona’s economic growth by offering transloading, inventory management and final-destination shipping for a variety of industries,” PCI Reload President Hal Owens said. “We believe Loup is well positioned to continue the PCI Reload tradition of exceeding customers’ expectations.”
