DALLAS, Sept. 1, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Jaguar Transport Holdings has entered into an agreement with Loup Logistics, a wholly owned subsidiary of Union Pacific Railroad, to operate the Dallas Transload Solution (DTL) in Dallas, TX. This 7-acre facility is just southeast of downtown Dallas; Jaguar expects to begin operations on September 5, 2023.
Adjacent to I-45, the facility connects with the Union Pacific Railroad and is equipped with three transload tracks, trucks scales, covered storage and other outdoor laydown space.
Dallas Transload provides rail service for customers who want the efficiencies of using rail but lack a physical site located on a railroad. The facility currently serves customers who transload commodities including steel and lumber.
“Jaguar is thrilled to take over operations of the Dallas Transload. This is a great opportunity to serve current and future customers in a very strategic location,” said Tim Enayati, Sr. Vice President of Commercial and Industrial Development for Jaguar. “We are excited to partner with Loup Logistics and build a team at the facility that will exceed expectations for our customers by providing safe and efficient service.”
“Jaguar exhibits a passion for customer-centricity and innovation. Loup Logistics is thrilled to have Jaguar bring that mindset to Dallas,” said Kiley Freeman, Loup General Director Transload and Logistics.
The DTL is the sixth rail park operation for Jaguar, who has partnered with OPTrust, one of Canada’s largest pension plans. Other Jaguar facilities include the West Memphis Transload in West Memphis, AR and the Marion Industrial Rail Park in Marion, OH.
